A Bradwell schoolgirl has left almost 19,000 others trailing to make it to the Teen Queen London finals.
Georgia Cruickshank has made it to the last 50 girls, helped in part by the large number of people who voted for her by text.
The 16-year-old of El Alamein Way, was spotted by scouts at the Clothes Show Live in December and encouraged to enter the online modelling competition
The Lynn Grove High School pupil, who works at Fusion in Gorleston on Saturdays, said she was grateful for all the local support and thanked everyone who had taken the time to vote for her.
Being involved in the competition has so far meant a photoshoot in London earlier this year, but clinching top honours would bring a host of prizes including international travel as part of a charity work element.
Winning the competition would also raise her profile and bring new opportunities said her mother Diane, who said she had already had a taste of local limelight in a range of stage shows and had an interest in modelling.
The finals will be held in London in the summer.
