THE only way was Slimming World for reality star Mark Wright when he met a group of Slimming World consultants recently at the organisation’s annual awards ceremony.

The team, which runs weekly Slimming World groups in Redditch, were thrilled to get the chance to pose for a photo with Mark at the event in Birmingham.

Mark, who shot to fame on The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) before taking to the jungle as a contestant in I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, now fronts ITV2 show Take Me Out The Gossip.

He joined Slimming World’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE to host the ceremony, and said: “Presenting the Slimming World Awards was a real honour. I was absolutely blown away by the people who joined us on stage.

“Throughout the day I met so many fantastic people, not only the slimmers collecting awards but also amazing people who run the Slimming World groups and help them achieve so much.

“Staying in shape is something I have to work hard at myself and I know it’s not always easy. I really feel the people of Redditch are very lucky to have such a great support network on their doorstep.”
