A group of Angus Slimming World consultants met singer and TV presenter Peter Andre.

The team, who run weekly Slimming World groups in Angus, say they were “thrilled” to get a chance to cuddle up to Peter when he co-hosted the Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s chairwoman and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.

Montrose and Forfar consultant Carmen Glasby said meeting the ‘Mysterious Girl’ and ‘Insania’ singer was a wonderful way to round off what’s been a great 12 months for Slimming World.

She said: “I’m so proud of all of our members. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2014, with many of them reaching their target weights and improving their health substantially.

“Meeting Peter was a real treat – he was such a nice guy – and a great way to celebrate all of that.

“Now we feel powered up and can’t wait to help our members hold on to all of the fabulous changes they’ve made and to support even more people to become happier and healthier in 2015.”

Two-time celebrity dad-of-the-year Peter said: “Being in the public eye there’s a lot of scrutiny and if you put on even a pound or two the magazines and newspapers are extremely quick to point it out, so I’ve always tried to take care of myself and watch my weight.

“However, since becoming a dad I’ve realised it’s about more than just looking good; it’s much more important to me that I’m fit and healthy and setting a good example to my children.

“At the awards I met lots of people who’ve lost incredible amounts of weight and it has completely transformed their lives – and their families’ lives too.

“They’re eating more healthily and being more active, and so are their families.”
