It definitely wasn’t ‘no likey, no lighty’ when a group of South Yorkshire Slimming World Consultants met comedian and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness at an annual awards ceremony.
The women, who run weekly Slimming World groups, were delighted to cuddle up to Take Me Out presenter Paddy when he co-hosted the Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.
Slimming World Consultant Lesley Haywood, who runs a group at The Salvation Army, Kimberworth, Rotherham, every Wednesday and Thursday, said meeting Paddy at the event, at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre, was the cherry on top of a great year for Slimming World groups.
“Obviously the most important thing is our members have lost weight and improved their health throughout 2013 and we’re so proud of all the slimmers in the area,” she said.
Lesley was one of five South Yorkshire consultants to meet Paddy. The others were Kerry Millson, Alison Gibson, Abigail Jenkins and Christine Travis, who runs a group at The Learning Zone in Parson Cross every Monday and The Scout Hall, Chapeltown every Friday.
