SHE is a de­liv­ery driver by day and mod­els by night, now Shantelle Wood­ford has taken out Miss Townsville 2015.

The 19- year- old auto spares de­liv­ery driver was last night crowned Miss Townsville 2015, af­ter a three- day com­pe­ti­tion in­volv­ing cos­tumes, swimwear and for­mal wear at the Townsville Show.

The young model beat out 31 other con­tenders to take home $ 10,000 in cash and will be a face for Townsville at events around the re­gion.

“I was so ex­cited, I could hardly walk when it was an­nounced. I haven’t been do­ing com­pe­ti­tions for very long, so to win this was re­ally ex­cit­ing,” Ms Wood­ford ( pic­tured) said.

“This is a big step into the light. It will hope­fully start my ca­reer. I want to be a model so win­ning com­pe­ti­tions like this is a ma­jor step.

“My friends and fam­ily sup­ported me the whole way. I don’t think I could have done it with­out them.”
