A Leigh slimming group manager met up with a top comedian at a recent awards ceremony.

Maggie Lloyd 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.

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

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

He said: “I think the people of Leigh are very lucky to have people like Maggie who are clearly dedicated to helping slimmers and to have such great support networks on their doorstep.”

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

Maggie added: “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.”
