A super slimmer from Morley was congratulated on her 9st 13lb weight loss by actor Will Mellor after reaching the semi-finals of a national slimming competition.

Lesley Leathley, 66, joined the Churwell Slimming World group in September 2012. She has since gone from 20st 13lbs to 11st.

She said: “I’d tried losing weight before – I’ve done pretty much every diet under the sun – but I always found the plans that I followed too hard to stick to because they left me feeling hungry and deprived, which made me pretty fed up and miserable.

Slimming World was completely different, I don’t have to go hungry and I’ve never once felt like I’m missing out on anything.

Will, who starred in BBC series In the Club, visited the organisation’s head office in Derbyshire to help the slimmers celebrate.

He said: “What she’s achieved is so inspirational, she’s completely changed her life – and her family’s life for that matter – and she looks great!”
