Honiton Slimming World organiser meets star at awards ceremony.

Sharon Grove 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.

Sharon, who runs weekly Slimming World groups at Honiton Baptist Church, was thrilled to meet the funnyman, who shot to fame on TV panel show 8 Out of 10 Cats, in Birmingham.

Salford-born stand-up Jason, who has appeared on a string of television shows including Show Me the Funny, Comedy Rocks and Live at the Apollo, joined Slimming World’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE to host the ceremony.

Sharon says meeting Jason Manford was the perfect ending to another extraordinary year for Slimming World. The national organisation helps more than a million people every year to lose weight and lead healthier, happier lives at one of its 8,000 weekly sessions.

“But there’s still a lot of work to be done,” adds Sharon. “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.”
