Slimming expert Jill Milne tightened her belt for the New Year and predicts it will be a bumper year for peeling off the pounds.

Jill met Eastender's star Shane Richie at an awards night for Slimming World.

Jill runs classes for the organisation at Heatherside Community Centre, Camberley, and St Mark's Church Hall, Farnborough.

Shane, who hosted the event, said he was amazed by the stories of people who had transformed their lives by losing weight.

Jill said January would probably be a record-breaking month for slimmers determined to get trim and fit for spring.
