Despite Co-op worker Andrea, 45, being older, and lighter than the other weight lose competitors she lost 27 lbs during the three-month programme.

Also taking part were Dayle Lane, 20, from Co-op, who lost 4lbs and Darren Hamilton, 39, from Sainsbury’s, who lost 7 1/2lbs.

Fitness manager Ed Gladstone said: “Andrea really asked for our advice, especially when it came to diet and she followed it to the letter.”

Ed asked for workers from the two stores to compete to add a bit of extra spice to the competition but he discovered a real sense of camaraderie grew between the competitors.

Ed said: “They all just wanted everyone to do well because they all knew what each other were going through. “

Andrea’s prize is six months free membership at the gym and each of the runners up were given two months free membership.
