I wanted to win
At first I went in and thought Im going to win this but the more you go on in the competition, the more you appreciate just getting through week by week! I didnt want to go but I had an idea that I was leaving, I just sensed it. Im still excited about modelling though and plan to continue!
I model my style around Agyness Deyn
But because of my height  I look up to Kate Moss. When I got picked it was great to know the judges believed I still had potential even though I was shorter than the other girls.
My hair is now shaved and dark pink.
Being a hairdresser at Toni &Guy I found the makeover week hard. Having my own opinions on my hair I knew what kind of things that I had in mind for it, so its hard to just sit back, when you have your own opinions on something. After leaving the show I shaved my hair off, and now its a dark pink colour.
The naked shoot was scary
I really didnt want to do that. I think if that had been the first shoot I would have had a really different attitude, but it was after I had been in the house for so long and grown more conscious of my body. Being around the other girls I felt myself comparing myself to them. Being shorter and slightly bigger -it made me quite paranoid, I lost a lot of confidence.
I learnt a lot in the house
The judges give you really good advice. I learned so much- especially the lightening workshop that was so helpful. Being shorter I learned about how to stand, and my arms looked better angled away from the camera.
For more goss and exclusive interview reads- head here:
Tyson is good to have a laugh with
He wasnt as serious as the other judges and you need that kind of thing, he would always lighten the mood on the shoots. Elle has great professional experience and advice, while Dannii is comforting, like a mum figure.
I loved the underwater shoot
It was an adrenaline rush Ive done an underwater shoot in the past, so I felt confident, as it wasnt my first time. A good tip I learnt was to rub milk on my eye and it stops it stinging under water.
I didnt feel feminine in the house
Being an Army cadet, when I am in uniform no one cares what I look like at all- it doesnt matter. Whereas being in the house and on the show I was more conscious of what I looked like because thats what I was judged on.
But my training came in handy. I aced the physically challenging shoots!
When it came to those shoots I definitely think I excelled more. The Louis Smith shoot on the horse and the underwater shoot were great- when it comes to the rough and tumble kind of the thing; Im good at that!
Britain & Irelands Next Top Model is on Thursdays at 9pm on Sky Living.
