Comfort-eating teenager Paige Stoodley dropped six stone and five dress sizes before starting a new life at university.
The 18-year-old previously weighed 17 stone, but chose to lose weight to regain her confidence.
"I was scared to apply for university when I was the size I was," she says, saying that her big personality was a way to cover up insecurities.
She has been crowned Slimming World Young Slimmer of the Year.
