The 14-year-old, a student at Brooksbank School, heard about the contest at the Clothes Show Live in Birmingham.

She had her photo taken and, when she got through to the next round, was invited to London for a photoshoot.

Now she is in the top 50 and will find out next week if she has been picked for the live final in London.

Her mum Alison said: “She’s really excited.”

This is the first time Megan has done any modelling but she has been dancing since she was two and is a student at Sandra Whiteley’s Academy of Dance in Halifax. She is already 5ft 8ins tall and now plans to contact modelling agencies to see if she can pursue a career in the industry.
