Two women who helped others shed the pounds in 2015 got to meet soapstar-turned-popstar Jason Donovan at an awards event.

Chris Bateson and Mickala Day, who both run Slimming World groups in the Sleaford area, were ‘delighted’ to meet the Australian star.

The former Neighbours actor co-hosted the annual Slimming World awards in Birmingham, which both Chris and Mickala attended to support and congratulate the most successful slimmers of the year.

Chris, who runs the Sleaford group at The Solo every Monday night, said she was proud of her members, who had ‘lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015’.

Mickala, who runs the Heckington Slimming World Group, based at the village hall, added: “I felt very honoured to represent Heckington when I met Jason.”

Jason Donovan said: “At the awards, I met lots of people who’ve lost incredible amounts of weight and it has completely changed their lives – in fact, it’s saved their lives in some cases.”
