Alice Loombe, 21, appeared in the finals of Mr and Mrs Runway, which was held in London on September 8, and took third place.

Miss Loombe, who has recently moved to Birmingham, first entered the competition when she saw it advertised online.

The former Northgate High School student said: “I was pretty terrified as this was my first catwalk competition but it actually went better than I thought it would.”

A musical theatre graduate, Miss Loombe was given four days of intensive training for the catwalk, had styling sessions, and for the final show took part in three different “heats” - urban, tribal and couture.

“That was the most fun about it - being transformed for it so quickly.”

Miss Loombe is originally from Holt and has worked at Victoria Goss and Butler’s Restaurant in the town during her school holidays.

She moved to Birmingham after graduating from Expressions Academy of Performing Arts in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, earlier this year and now she hopes to pursue a career in modelling.

She added: “I’m just going to try everything and give everything my best shot - you only live once.”

Mr and Mrs Runway aims to help models launch their modelling careers by providing both a competitive and professional platform for them to develop and exhibit their skills.
