Norwich teenager Mica Burton reaches semi-final of Teen Queen UK beauty pageant

A Mile Cross 17-year-old has reached the national semi-final of teen beauty pageant, Teen Queen UK.

Mica Burton, of Mile Cross Road, was invited to enter the competition while visiting The Clothes Show Live in Birmingham last year with her fellow beauty therapy student from City College Norwich.

She is up against 39 other girls aged 16-19 from all around the UK - from an initial 19,000 entrants - and is now battling for a place in a London final via a text vote.

Mica's mum, Ginette, said: 'We got a letter to say she has made it through to the next stage and that we needed to send off another photo for the next round, but now it is down to a text vote.'

To vote for Mica text 'TQ 21' to 81319 before 11.30pm on Thursday, March 15, which will cost 75p plus your standard network charge. For full details of the final, go to
