A KIRTON Middlecott student is showing she has brains and beauty, after she got through to the semi-finals of the Miss Teen Great Britain award.

The 15-year-old, who lives in Wyberton, has beaten off competition from dozens of other girls around the country to confirm her place in the semi-final, and will now be going on to face judges at the finals in Blackpool in March, along with 59 other aspiring models.

Ashley Gardner, who wants to be a primary school teacher, said: “I am so excited to have made it to the semi final, it is a great achievement. Making it to the grand final would be a dream come true – fingers crossed I will be able to represent Boston and win the Miss Teen Great Britain crown.”
