The winner will also receive a year’s modelling contract with Glamrus Model Agency, £100 to spend at Eleven and teeth whitening courtsey of Olivers on Durham Road.

Connor Newby, 17, from Silksworth was entered by his mam.

He’s studying medical science at Bede College and was really surprised when she told she had entered him into the.

He said: “I didn’t expect it. I’ve never thought about modelling before but the prizes look great.

“I would definitely be interested in winning them.”

Stephanie Kirton, from High Barnes, is a travel and tourism lecturer at Tyneside College. The 24-year-old had no idea she had been entered until she saw her picture on our facebook page.
