A mother-of-three from Great Wishford is a finalist in a national modelling competition.
Dawn Shergold, 32, is representing Wiltshire in Miss British Beauty Curve 2014, which is open to women from dress size 14 up.
“I just thought I’d go for it,” she said. “I didn’t think I was going to get chosen. I wasn’t going to do it originally because nerves got the better of me but I had lots of encouragement from people. It’s great.”
Ms Shergold, who runs a craft business, will be taking part in the final on July 7.
