TWO West Fife slimmers got the chance to meet TV star Rylan Clark-Neal when they attended the annual Slimming World Awards earlier this month.

The event celebrated the organisation's 50th year and Glen Davidson, who runs a Slimming World group at Townhill Bowling Club, and Alun Fotheringham, who runs a group at Kelty Community Centre, were delighted to rub shoulders with the television personality.

Glen said meeting the TV host was a wonderful way to round off a great year.

“I couldn’t be prouder of the members of the Fife groups," he said. "Not only have they lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2018 – with many of them hitting their target weights – they’ve also improved their health, boosted their confidence and are heading into 2019 with new healthy habits that will stay with them for life.

“Watching people change before my eyes and start being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight absolutely amazes me.

"Every week, I feel privileged to play even a small part in supporting people towards these achievements.”
