Slimming World consultant from North Devon was starstruck when she met the former Neighbours star.

A Slimming World consultant from Northam was left star-struck after meeting former Neighbours actor and popstar Jason Donovan.

Lisa Doolan, who runs a Slimming World group at Northam Primary School, was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian when he swapped Ramsay Street for the annual Slimming World Awards.

Lisa said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off the year.

She said: “I couldn’t be prouder of the members of the Northam group.

“They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and more.

“It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s wearing smaller clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or being able to do more with their family and friends.

“Every week I feel so lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and I felt very honoured to represent the Northam Slimming World group when I met Jason.

“Now I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people in North Devon to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.”
