The Slob to Heartthrob Transformation

10th April 2015

Follow our Slob's Journey to Heartthrob

First up - on Tuesday we revealed our SLOB - Wayne Paternotte from St Ives, a waiter at the Chy-an-Albany Hotel was nominated by partner Georgina - have a listen:


So we separated Wayne and Georgina, sending him to stay at The Glendorgal Hotel in Newquay until the Big Reveal.  

And it so the transformation began ... 

attic Manicure First up, we headed to The Attic Beauty Salon in Wadebridge, where Wayne began his first treatment, waxing his back:

Followed by a manicure and pedicure, under the professional hands of Vicky, it wasn't too stressful an experience:


Haircut at Split EnzWayne's overgrown but usual No.1 all over haircut was tidied up by professional hairstylist Vicky from Split Enz in St Agnes, which made an impressive difference:

Next it was time to tackle those moobs hidden away under his hoodie!  Off to Zest Beauty salon in Goonhavern for non-invasive ultrasonic liposuction at the hands of professional Claire. Zest LiposuctionClaire explains how it works:

and the immediate results were impressive:


It was now time to suit and boot our slob at David Parish Menswear in Launceston at the hands of professional dresser Richard.  Imagine the scene from Pretty Woman where outfit after outfit was tried on, even a pink shirt!

The result was a very dapper Wayne, in a summery outfit that will be suitable to mix and match for all occasions.

It's time to put our slob through his final paces, with teeth whitening and a hydra-facial with Aqua Skincare in their Truro salon (and they have a Gonwin Manor Carbis Way salon too).

After all the pampering, the only thing left now is the actual re-uniting of Wayne, our slob, with his partner Georgina, as she's the only one who can judge his heart-throb status.

Here's the moment we reveal Wayne to Georgina for her verdict:

Now Wayne is declared a Heartthrob, its time to whisk them off in a Mustang convertible courtesy of Sharon from Must Hire Mustang to their luxury break. Good job too as Sharon said she couldn't have any slobs in her cars!

MarrakechAnd of course, the luxurious 2 night stay away at the One4Two couples only retreat in Bude awaits our Heartthrob Wayne and partner Georgina.  Kathy explains the concept, and the lucky couple get to stay in the Marrakech suite:

And this is not the end of the story - both Georgina and Wayne have decided to Quit Smoking with Cornwall's Stop Smoking and Health Promotion service, and we will follow-up on their continued transformation in the weeks and months to come.


Linda Quee gave general advice to anyone else wanting to Stop Smoking.

Thanks to everyone involved in Slob to Heartthrob promotion and it's been a real pleasure getting to know Wayne and Georgina.
