Rossendale teenager wins 'Miss Teen Great Britain'
A BARMAID and model from East Lancashire is ready to take on the world after being named Miss Teen Great Britain.
Nineteen-year-old Brittany Hargreaves walked away with the £1,000 prize after overcoming the challenges of more than 50 contenders at Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s Globe theatre.
Proud mum Andrea Jones said: “It was an amazing night and we were so happy when she walked away with the crown.”
Last year Brittany, from Whitewell Bottom in Rossendale, also reached the national final, reaching the final eight and being named Style Queen – but there was no stopping her in 2013, and she will also collect a stunning dress, a celebrity makeover and modelling deal as part of her prize.
Brittany was competing as Miss Teen Lancashire and has been taking her duties seriously, acting as an ambassdor for Rosemere Cancer Foundation and attending shop openings.
Away from the catwalk she works behind the bar at Nino’s, in Cliviger, where bosses supported her Miss Teen GB tilt. She has already formed a number of firm friendships with her fellow contestants and is looking forward to the opportunities her new title will offer.
