Slimming World members Lorraine Fowler, Alison Atkin, Lynn Cornish, Marissa Unsworth and Fran Overall-Barnes were voted Miss Slinky with Carlton Leworthy, Simon Heusen, Colin Watts and Tim Slade taking home the title of Mr Sleek at their respective groups.

All of the slimmers attend one of the five groups run by consultants Harriet Steptoe and Lisa Craig.

Harriet said; “I’ve no doubt that they’ll inspire other people to lose weight too and show that whether you’ve got a little or a lot of weight to lose, slimming down can make a big difference to how you feel about yourself and really boost your confidence.

“Our Miss Slinkys and Mr Sleeks are happier, healthier and fitter, and every week the group love hearing about their progress.”
