Donna’s dream needs the vote

Former Miss Blackpool and local model, Donna Fleetwood (above) is hoping to win the national search for the next face of chain store and fashion catalogue Next – and wants you to help.

Entries for the annual online competition are up 100 per cent on last year, say the organisers and website voting closes tomorrow at noon.

Entries will then be trimmed to a “shortlist” of 250 who will be sent to X Factor style boot camps and cut down to a final 50 who will take part in a grand final in London at the end of July to be judged by a panel of experts.

The two overall winners (one male, one female) will receive a £2,000 shopping spree at Next, the chance to star in a photo-shoot for the Next catalogue and a special introduction to leading model agency, Storm.

“It would be great if people could just take a few seconds to vote for me and put me in with a chance of being shortlisted,” said Donna. “Every vote counts especially as I started out at 16000th position!. It’s free to vote and I’d love to represent Blackpool and the Fylde coast in this vent.”

Support for Donna can be registered on the Next website or on her Facebook site.
