Alexandra Bastow, 18, was chosen as Miss West Yorkshire after entering the Galaxy Beauty Pageant competition online.

She is now set to take part in the England competition next year.

If she wins, she will be entered into the international competition with all costs paid for as her prize.

Alexandra, who lives with her mum Tracy and dad John in Mazebrook Crescent, Hunsworth, said: “I would be over the moon if I won.

“I work at the Yangtze restaurant in Liversedge and they are sponsoring me – I couldn’t have entered without them so I would like to thank them.”
