Yvonne Higgins has been recognised for her weight loss by her fellow Slimming World members.

She was selected as her group's Miss Slinky for 2019 - an award which recognises members whose weight loss has made them happier and healthier.

Mrs Higgins said she is now looking forward to Christmas.

She said: "I now have the confidence to wear outfits I couldn't or wouldn't have last year."

A few months after joining Slimming World, Mrs Higgins suffered a heart attack.

However, having lost one stone seven pounds already, doctors told her the initial weight loss would reduce the risk of a future attack.

Anyone who wants to become a member of Slimming World can join Lisa Boucher's group at the Open Door Centre at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 5pm or 7pm, every Tuesday.
