Eileen Foley, who runs Edinburgh's Slimming World groups, was in Birmingham for an awards ceremony.
The businesswoman was introduced to host Justin Lee Collins as part of the company's recognition of her work.
She said: "Meeting Justin Lee Collins was the perfect ending to what's been another amazing year.
"At this time of year lots of people will be pledging to slim down and shape up, and we'd love anyone who wants to make their New Year's resolution a reality to come join us at any of the Slimming World groups in Edinburgh.
"Even if they've struggled to stick to resolutions in the past, there's no need to be put off."
