A SEATON slimmer has met a TV star after reaching the semi-finals of a national competition.

Susan Kightly, who dropped from nearly 17 1/2 stone to just over nine, is in the running for Slimming World's Woman of the Year 2009.

She was congratulated by Emmerdale actor Jeff Hordley, when she attended the event at Slimming World's head office in Derbyshire earlier this month.

She said: "From the instant I walked into my local Slimming World group, my journey has been full of surprises. I couldn't believe I'd found a way to lose weight without feeling hungry.

Jeff said he was impressed with Susan's transformation.
