Slimming World consultants from the Highlands had the chance to meet a top TV personality as the organisation celebrated its 50th anniversary.
Former X Factor star Rylan Clark-Neal hosted the annual Slimming World Awards alongside founder and chairwoman Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.
Among those invited to the prestigious event were members of the team who run the organisation’s groups across the north.
Evelyn Foley who runs classes in Tain and Golspie, said the event was a great way to end the year.
“Watching people change before my eyes and start being able to do things that they didn’t think were possible before losing weight absolutely amazes me,” she said.
“Every week I feel privileged to play even a small part in people’s achievements and to celebrate with them, so I felt especially honoured to represent our Slimming World groups at the Slimming World Awards.
“Rylan was blown away by the difference Slimming World makes to people’s lives too.”
Mr Clark-Neal added: “I met so many people who had lost incredible amounts of weight and made a huge difference to their lives.
“It’s clear that the people who run the groups each week are worth their weight in gold.”
