Good evening everyone, my name's Ann Lawrence,I'm Jane Michell's – can you hear us? – Jane's commissioning editor at Piatkus books, which is part of the Little Brand book group.
We're absolutely delighted to have Jane'sbook on our list, it really is a fantastic approach to losing weight.
I think Jane is the best example, she's justa fantastic advertisement and it's lovely to see everybody here tonight supporting her.
I'm going to hand over to Jane now, to saya few words.
>>Obviously it's a massive, massive thankyou to every single person here, because there's not one person in this room who has not contributedin some way.
So thanks firstly to my amazing team at JanePlan.
They are incredible – I even got a bunch of flowers from them today, I was so overwhelmed.
All the girl's in the office clubbed together – it was just incredible – so I really appreciate your loyalty and dedication and the long hours you put in, so thank youso much.
To everyone who's contributed, Ann's a fantasticpublisher, and to Heather who bullied me into doing this book wherever you are.
I have notime, I said – I can't do it.
To Caroline Rise, an amazing friend, author,journalist, thank you for everything you've done.
Of course to Jane Garten, who played an enormousrole, we met every Friday, sometimes more, to pen the book.
She put heart and soul intoit, so I can't recommend her more highly.
Of course our amazing clients because JanePlan would not be what it is without our clients and they're an incredible, incredible bunchof people.
I really admire and am very close to all of our clients.
Even though we're so distant now because thereare so many of them! There are literally thousands and thousands of them.
They certainly spanthe country and to a degree, they span the world, as well.
To all the amazing publicity we've had, GoodHousekeeping recently voted us as Britain's best diet delivery service which is amazing.
Lots of other press, and to all my friends,I'm sorry I've been so absent for four years.
I'd love to pretend I'm not going to be foranother four, but, I might be.
But most particularly, to my family, who havejust been incredible, I am really very, very absent and they just carry on! So I'd liketo thank my three free range children, and to Jane Plan.
It's the book that's going to stop any woman,ever having to say again: does my bum look big in this?.
