Two North Somerset slimming consultants came face to face with a pop icon at a national awards event.

Millie Lewis and Anna Robinson run Slimming World groups at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre in Nailsea, and were in Birmingham for the company’s annual awards.

The event’s host was pop star Peter Andre, best known for his hit Mysterious Girl, and both Millie and Anna enjoyed the chance to meet him in celebration of the success of their groups.

The duo have helped dozens of people lose weight and ‘change their lives’ this year, and their efforts were heralded by Peter.

He said: “I met so many incredible people who had lost amazing amounts of weight and transformed themselves – inside and out. “Every one of them spoke passionately about how they couldn’t have made the changes they had without the support, advice and encouragement of their consultant and group every week, so there’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that Slimming World and people like Millie and Anna are very special.”

And speaking afterwards, Millie said: “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 me what an important and privileged role I have.

“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.

“I couldn’t be prouder of my members. Throughout 2017 they have lost fantastic amounts of weight, with many of them hitting their target weights, improving their health and boosting their confidence.

“Now I’m heading into 2018 super-motivated to support even more people in Somerset to be inspired to lose weight and lead healthier and happier lives.”

And that view was shared by Anna, who said: “Lots of people will be making resolutions to lose weight and improve their health this New Year. I truly believe that joining a Slimming World group is the best way for people to lose weight, learn new habits and improve their lifestyle.

“I’d love for anyone who’s thinking about losing weight this January to join us.”
