Barry Palmer, from Oakham, won a place in the final of Slimming World’s Man of the Year 2015 contest after losing 10 stone 8½ pounds since March 2014.

Because of his success he won the chance to meet former Hollyoaks actress Gemma Atkinson at a special ceremony.

Barry, 64, who attends the Oakham Slimming World group, said: “At my heaviest I knew I wouldn’t have been around long enough to see my grandchildren grow up. Now I’m looking forward to many years of happiness.”
