Two weight loss consultants were congratulated for their efforts by a famous Australian singer.

Peter Andre thanked Karen Butler and Sarah-Jayne Neall for their efforts in helping people lose weight through their Slimming World groups in Finchley and Edgware at The Slimming World Awards at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.

Ms Butler said: "Cuddling up to Peter was a real treat.

"He was bowled over by the difference Slimming World makes to people’s lives and it reminded me what an important and privileged role I have as a consultant."

Mr Andre supported The Big Slimming World Clothes Throw, which raised £3.3million for Cancer Research UK in just two weeks.
