Super slimmers from Powys celebrated their successes by meeting chat show host and comedian, Alan Carr.

The team, who run Slimming World groups in mid Powys, were delighted to get a chance to meet the well-loved TV personality at the annual Sliming World Awards.

Maggie Richards, who runs groups in Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells, said it was the perfect end to a fantastic year for the Powys Slimming World groups.

She said: “The members at our group make me burst with pride, not only have they seen big changes on the scales, many have improved their health and completely changed their lives too.

"Watching people grow in confidence each week and take on things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight absolutely amazes me.

“I feel proud of the small part I play in supporting people to achieve their dreams and to celebrate alongside them when they do, so we were honoured to represent the Powys groups."

‘Chatty Man’ Alan said it was great to be invited to the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.

He said: “I met so many people who had transformed their lives and it was clear how much the support they received from their ‘Slimming World family’ meant to them.

“I left the awards feeling so uplifted and positive, I wish I could’ve bottled that Slimming World feeling.”
