NINETIES pop sensation Peter Andre joined Bromsgrove Slimming World consultants to celebrate a record-breaking year for weight loss.

Team members were delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Aussie TV presenter as he presented the annual Slimming World Awards at Birmingham's International Convention Centre.

Bromsgrove consultant Dawn Kendle was commended for her members' efforts throughout 2017, with many of them hitting their target weights.

Dawn said: "It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things that they didn’t think were possible before losing weight, whether that’s having more energy, feeling happier, wearing smaller clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or doing more with their family and friends.

"Every week we feel extremely lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and we felt very honoured to represent our Slimming World groups at the Slimming World Awards.

“Cuddling up to Peter was a real treat. He was bowled over by the difference Slimming World makes to people’s lives and it reminded us what important and privileged roles we have as Consultants.

"Now we’re heading into 2018 super motivated to support even more people in Bromsgrove to be inspired to lose weight and lead healthier and happier lives.”

Peter told guests he was honoured to present the awards, and described the winners as 'inspirational'.

He added: "There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that Slimming World and people who run the groups are very special.”
