Potters Bar mum wants to be the Next top model
‘MAKE me the Next model’.
That is the battle-cry of a mother from Potters Bar who has entered into a retailer’s modelling competition.
Karen Reid, of Cranborne Road, has ambitions to become a model for Next and is calling on local people for support.
The 33-year-old is hoping to poll enough votes to feature in the top 100 of the retailer’s ‘Make me the Next model too’ competition, in which the public will decide who makes the cut.
If successful, the mother-of-two will go through to a live final in London next month, where two overall winners will be announced.

Karen, who attended Mount Grace School and now works as a PA, said: “It’s a difficult industry to get into but hopefully people from the area will support their local girl.
“It’s something I’ve wanted to do and now my children have grown up I’ve got the chance.”

Two lucky winners from the July 30 final, held at Old Billingsgate Market, London, will each enjoy a �2,000 shopping spree at the high street store, as well as a Next photo-shoot and a special introduction to leading model agency, Select.
This year’s Next competition follows the retailer’s inaugural contest last summer, in which WGC’s Alesha Dixon was a judge.
The Welwyn Hatfield Times covered Karen’s bid to become the UK Face of Fashion in October and she is calling on even more local support this time around.
Voting is open until noon on July 9 on Next’s online Facebook gallery.
