SLIMMING club bosses met one of Britain’s favourite comedy stars to celebrate a successful year.

Kay Driscoll and Lucy Phipps had the chance to meet Chatty Man Alan Carr an an annual Slimming World ceremony.

TV personality Alan co-hosted the awards with the organisation’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell.

Kay Driscoll, who runs a Burnham slimming group was delighted to get a chance to meet Alan, and said it was the perfect end to a fantastic year.

She said: “Alan was left in awe of the difference Slimming World makes to people’s lives too.

“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 Maldon and Burnham at the awards.”
