A group of Slimming World Consultants is feeling ready to make any dream come true after meeting legendary soap actor and popstar Jason Donovan.

The team, who run Slimming World groups in Rugby, was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heartthrob when he swapped Ramsay Street for the annual Slimming World Awards.

He co-hosted the event with the organisation’s chair and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.

Amanda Blanchard said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year for Slimming World, as well as a great way to get ready for another successful 12 months.

She said: “They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and more.”

Jason, who found fame on Aussie soap opera Neighbours before launching a pop music and stage career, said he was thrilled to meet the consultants at the event, held in Birmingham.
