TV comic’s praise for Weston duo
PUBLISHED: 11:00 01 January 2011
TWO slimming experts from North Somerset came face-to-face with a well-known TV funny man during a national awards event.
Hannah Kennard and Amy Baker run Slimming World groups in Weston and Congresbury, and met West Country comic Justin Lee Collins at the company’s annual bash.
The Bristol comedian was co-hosting the celebration, and paid tribute to the efforts of slimmers from across the country.
He said: “The whole experience blew me away. What’s great is it’s about ordinary people who’ve achieved something truly extraordinary.
“I met some really inspirational people. Not only the slimmers who collected awards for losing weight and changing their lives, but also the amazing people like Hannah and Amy who run the groups and support them along their journey.”
