Doctor Who and Torchwood star John Barrowman meets local ladies

Wednesday 2pm - A LOCAL STAR came face to face with an international star when she was recognised for her contribution to Slimmer's World and branded 'inspirational' by performer, John Barrowman.

Rebecca Stones from Welton runs weekly slimming classes at St Michael's Primary School, Louth, and at the Pensioners Hall, Skegness.

John Barrowman, the firm favourite on TV talent shows like Any Dream Will Do and How Do You Solve a Problem like Maria? said how special Rebecca is because she helps people to achieve their dreams every week.

Rebecca was over the moon to meet the star.

She said: "Meeting John was an amazing experience. I couldn't believe that he was even more gorgeous in real life - I'll be treasuring our photograph together!

But despite her glitzy evening, Rebecca said she was looking forward to coming back and helping Louth lose weight.

"I can't wait to get back to my group and help more people to lose weight and improve their health".

Also recognised for her work for Slimmers World was Lincoln lady, Jenny Holland who runs the classes in Market Rasen.
