A 51-year-old slimmer from Fife has scored big after reaching the semi-final of a competition to find the UK and Ireland’s top male slimmers.

As part of the event, Graeme Kermath met international football star Wayne Bridge .

Graeme was one of 38 men to win a place at the semi-final of Slimming World’s Man of the Year 2017 competition after losing an impressive 9st 8.5lb.

It was there that he was congratulated by the former Chelsea, Manchester City and England hero.

Graeme, who slimmed from 23st 11lb to 14st 2.5lb at the Methil Slimming World group, believes it can be hard for men to admit they need help to lose weight, and that it is especially difficult for them to walk through the doors of a slimming club for the first time.
