Jemma was chosen for the final after attending a tutorial day held by organiser’s The Kerri Parker Model Academy last month.

“This is something I really want to do. It has given me a big confidence boost and I feel I have achieved a lot in short time,” said Jemma.

She will be joined on the catwalk by Great Yarmouth girl Chrissie-lea Dyball, 20, who was a finalist in the Miss Norfolk pageant earlier this year.

The Model of the Year final takes place on Friday for over 18s and Saturday for 14-18 year olds at Open in London Street, Norwich.

The winners crowned Model of the Year and Teen Model of the Year will receive thousands of pounds in prizes and represent the Kerri Parker Academy for the next 12 months.
