A woman who lost nearly seven stone reached the semi-finals of Slimming World’s ‘slimmer of the year’ competition.

She earned her place along with just 46 others from across the UK and was congratulated on her weight loss by Dancing on Ice winner and Emmerdale actor, Matthew Wolfenden.

Stevie, 22, slimmed down from 15st 3lb to 8st 8lb since she joined the Kimberley Slimming World group in January 2011.

She said: “If ever my motivation started to fade the group were there to remind me how far I’d come. Each week we talk about coping with different challenges coming up and share recipes, practical advice and handy tips like offers we’ve seen in local supermarkets. Thanks to them – and my weight loss – I’m a more confident person as well as a slimmer one.”

The group meets at Rumbletums Café every Tuesday at 5pm and 7pm.
