High hopes for Holly

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

Wishaw lass Holly Ma­cLean has been crowned Miss Teen North La­nark­shire and is on her way to the na­tional finals of a pres­ti­gious mod­el­ling con­test.

Clyde Val­ley High School pupil Holly, 15, is one of the few girls aged be­tween 10 and 19 from all over the UK to make it through to the grand fi­nal of Miss Teen Great Bri­tain at The Globe in Black­pool on Oc­to­ber 23.

In their let­ter con­grat­u­lat­ing Holly on her place in the fi­nal, judges said they were im­pressed with her an­swers on their ques­tion­naire and said she had a“great look for the com­pe­ti­tion”.

Fourth year pupil Holly, of Over­town, was nom­i­nated by proud mum Les­ley.

“In the Wishaw Press last year, I read about a wee girl from Wishaw who got through in this con­test and thought I’d send in Holly’s pic­tures,”ex­plained Les­ley, a sec­re­tary at Air­bles Road Hos­pi­tal.

“She has never mod­elled be­fore, al­though she danced at the world cham­pi­onships and has been a cheer­leader and she’s re­ally in­ter­ested in fash­ion.”

Holly and other fi­nal­ists will com­pete for the cov­eted Miss Teen Great Bri­tain crown and spec­tac­u­lar prizes, in­clud­ing £1000, dresses from The Dress Stu­dio and cos­met­ics.

Or­gan­is­ers say the week­end of the Miss Teen Great Bri­tain fi­nal is set to be full of fun, with fi­nal­ists en­joy­ing a Beauty Queen Chal­lenge Day and a py­jama diva party.

Mum Les­ley laughed: “She is a wee red-head. But if any­one calls her gin­ger she says she’s straw­berry blonde!”

Good luck, Holly.
