A 14-YEAR-old Matravers School pupil is taking part in the Junior Miss British Isles modelling competition next month.

Annie Bell will compete as Junior Miss Westbury in the category for girls aged 11-15. The winner will receive a modelling and promotions contract.

The national final takes place on May 26 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Chester. The event is run in association with the modelling industry watchdog ALBA.

Annie’s mum, Alison Bell, said: “Annie just loves singing, dance and musical theatre.

“She is a member of the Pauline Quirke Academy in Bath and Just So Dance in Westbury

“She has been dancing since she was about five years old and sings in open mic sessions at the Arc Theatre in Trowbridge.”

Annie, of Primmers Place, Westbury, has never competed in a modelling competition before.

She was invited to take part after being scouted through the London agency, Signature, and via Instagram.
