Georgia in UK teen queen heats

PRETTY Wellingborough teenager Georgia Durkin has made it through to the heats of the Miss Teen Princess UK competition.

The 14-year-old is one step away from the finals of the Miss Teen Queen Pageant, which is a national beauty contest.

Her participation came after she was scouted at the Clothes Show in December. She was then selected to go through to the next round and is in the running to reach the finals in September.

Her mum Dawn Durkin said: “She is very excited at being given such a fantastic opportunity but at the same time has remained very grounded about getting this far in the competition.”
