A little bit of JLC for Eileen ...

LOCAL slimming group organiser Eileen Foley met comedian Justin Lee Collins at the annual Slimming World awards show in Birmingham.

Eileen, who organises the Slimming World groups in Cumbernauld and Kilsyth, was thrilled to meet the funnyman who co-hosted the awards ceremony alongside Margaret Miles-Bramwell, founder of Slimming World.

Justin 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 Eileen who run and manage the groups and support them along their journey.

"I know only too well that slimming isn't easy.
