Portsmouth student makes Top Model UK final

Have your say

A Highbury College student is through to the finals of the Top Model UK.

Level 3 BTEC fashion student Ajara Leigh has been shortlisted in the editorial category.

She was talked into entering the contest by a friend, then sent in three photos and had to attend an interview. About 4,000 people applied and about 30 got through.

She said: ‘I’d like to win it and debut at London Fashion Week or maybe get a contract out of it.’

The Top Model UK finals take place on April 1 and 2.
