Receptionist competes in beauty contest

A BACKWELL receptionist will be ringing the changes after making it through to the final of Miss Bristol and Avon 2012.

Former Backwell School pupil Katie Ray, aged 20, will compete against women from throughout the county for the title, which would land her a place in the coveted Miss England final.

The Miss Bristol and Avon final, organised by national modelling agency Front Models, which specialises in hospitality and promotional work, will take place in Bristol, on March 26.

Katie will be interviewed by a panel of judges and will walk three catwalk rounds including day, party and evening wear.

Katie, who aspires to become a writer rather than a model, said: “I entered last year and really enjoyed the experience.

“I re-entered because I loved the morals that were associated with the competition. They are not looking for a Barbie doll, they are looking for a girl that is both beautiful on the inside and out, and who has a charitable nature.”

Fans of Katie can vote for her by texting MISS BRISTOL13 to 63333 or by calling 0901 3070136.
