Former Westwood Junior and Neale Wade Academy student, Amber Twell, beat the other hopefuls to win the crown and said her biggest beauty tip for women was to smile.

It is the second year that Amber, who is studying A Levels at King’s School in Ely, has entered the contest having come second last year.

In an interview with BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, she said: “I’m a very determined person and entered again. Luckily this year I won.

People disagree with beauty pageants because they think they’re very stereotyped. I focus on the charity aspect and helping people and showing girls can go out there and make a difference in the world.

“I can’t put into words how lucky I feel.”

In just one night her phone and social media pages have gone mad with offers of work and modelling.

She says her dream job would be to win a contract with a big agency in London to work with national brands.

And she said the biggest thing to make a woman look beautiful was to smile.

“It really works,” she said.

Amber earned a drama scholarship at King’s and is currently studying drama, English and photography at A-level.

She has been modelling since she was 14 after she was scouted at the Clothes Show Live in Birmingham.

She was crowned Miss Cambridgeshire at Cambridge’s Anstey Hall and will now be raising money for the charity, Beauty with a Purpose, ahead of the Miss England competition this summer.

Last year’s Miss Cambridge went on to be one of the top five in the Miss England contest.
