Also at the ceremony was Margaret Roberts, who manages Cornwall's Slimming World groups, who said: "For many people, taking that first step into a Slimming World group takes a huge amount of courage. "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 I was honoured to represent the Cornwall groups at the Slimming World Awards." A GROUP of Slimming World consultants from Wrexham celebrated their groups' successes by meeting a celebrity chat show host. The team, who run Slimming World groups in Wrexham, were delighted to get a chance to meet Alan Carr at the annual Slimming World Awards.

Diane Hendley-Jones 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. "For many people, taking that first step into a Slimming World group takes a huge amount of courage. "But they're always certain of a warm welcome and introduction to our fabulously flexible eating plan which means you're never hungry while you're losing weight. "And when you join a group and stay each week members support each other with motivation, tips and ideas, cheering each other on and boosting each other to face any challenges." Alan, who presented comedy chat show Chatty Man on Channel 4, said it was great to be invited to the event - 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.

"Every one of them spoke passionately about how they couldn't have made those changes to eat more healthily and become more active without the support of their consultants and group every week.
