A Slimming World manager from Gainsborough met legendary soap actor and popstar Jason Donovan at a recent awards ceremony.

Katie Trever, who manages Slimming World groups in Gainsborough was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heartthrob when he swapped Ramsay Street for the annual Slimming World Awards.

He co-hosted the event with the organisation’s chair and founder, Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.

Katie said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year for Slimming World.

“I felt very honoured to represent all of the Slimming World groups in Gainsborough when I met Jason. I couldn’t be prouder of our members. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015. After meeting Jason I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people in 2016.”

Jason, who found fame on Aussie soap opera Neighbours before launching a pop music and stage career, said he was thrilled to meet Anne and Rosie at the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.

He said: “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. People like Katie are clearly very important.”
