Brechin Slimming World manager Linda Middleton scored a big 10 out of 10 from comedian Jason Manford when they met at Slimming World’s annual awards ceremony to celebrate its most successful slimmers.

Linda, who manages Slimming World groups in Brechin, was thrilled to meet the funnyman, who shot to fame on TV panel show 8 Out of 10 Cats, at the event in Birmingham.

Jason joined Slimming World’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE, FRSA to host the ceremony.

He said: “I was blown away by the achievements of all of the slimmers who joined us on stage.

“Throughout the day I met so many inspirational people, not only the slimmers collecting awards but also the amazing people like Linda who run and manage the groups and help them achieve so much.

“It’s literally changed their lives beyond all recognition.

“I know keeping weight in control is a challenge for a lot of us these days and I think the people of Brechin are very lucky to have people like Linda who are clearly dedicated to helping slimmers and to have such great support networks on their doorstep.

“If anyone in Brechin is thinking about trying to lose weight, I can honestly say that a Slimming World group is the place to do it!”

Linda says meeting Jason Manford was the perfect ending to another extraordinary year for Slimming World.

“But there’s still a lot of work to be done,” adds Linda. “With some of the highest levels of obesity in Europe here in the UK, in 2012 we want to help even more people to slim down and improve their health starting this January. At this time of year lots of people will be making New Year’s resolutions and pledging to lose weight, and we’d love anyone who wants to make a change to come along and join us.

“Even if they’ve struggled to stick to resolutions in the past, there’s no need to be put off. Slimming World’s Food Optimising eating plan isn’t a diet, it’s an easy, healthy way of eating that the whole family can enjoy.
