A super slimmer from Morley was congratulated on her weight loss by former Westlife singer Brian McFadden at the semi-finals of a national slimming competition.
Fiona Platt reached the finals of Slimming World’s Woman of the Year 2013 competition after dropping from 16st 7.5lb to 10st 3lb .
Brian, who shot to fame in the Irish boyband, visited the organisation’s head office in Derbyshire to help its top slimmers celebrate their amazing achievements.
He said: “Fiona is proof that by making changes to her eating habits and getting active she’s obviously completely changed her life – and she looks great on it!”
Fiona missed out on a spot in the top 10 but Morley Slimming World consultant Jayne Broadbent said she was still bursting with pride.
“Fiona doesn’t only look great on the outside; she’s a new woman on the inside too,” she said.
“Nowadays she’s unrecognisable from the shy, unhappy woman who walked into the group all those months ago.”
