Steve and Wendy Burroughs from Great Yarmouth shed the weight after joining a Slimming World group in Bradwell and have now become one of just 30 couples from around the UK to reach the finals of the organisation's Couple of the Year 2013 contest.

Steve, aged 56, lost 4st 13lb in total – going from 19st 5lb to 14st 6lb, while Wendy, aged 51, dropped an impressive 6st 4lb to go from 15st 1.5lb to 8st 11.5lb.

'Losing weight together made a huge difference because we were able to spur each other on every week,' said Steve.

'We eat so much more healthily as a couple now cooking homemade meals instead of relying on convenience foods.

'We're both more active nowadays too and regularly enjoy going for long walks, going on the treadmill and Wendy enjoys Zumba too.'
