AN ASHINGTON teenager is through to the final of a regional pageant competition.
Seventeen-year-old Jodie Wheatherston won a heat of the Miss Sunderland competition where she will represent the town’s Life of Riley venue in the title decider.
She now goes into the final, set to be held at the Rainton Meadows Arena in Sunderland on Friday, May 24.
Jodie, who is studying for her A-levels and would eventually like to become a French teacher, has also just come back from London where she was picked out to model for an online fashion designer.
To secure her place in the Sunderland final, Jodie had to impress top judges in a number of categories in heat two of the competition.
And last year the youngster was a finalist in the 2012 Miss Northumberland competition.
