In a message on her Facebook page, Claire, a prison officer, said: “After an amazing time competing in Galaxy England (and making it into the top 10) it’s time for me to prepare for Intercontinental England.

“I want to thank everyone for their support and I hope to bring the crown back to Cumbria this time. Fingers crossed!”

She won the title of Miss Cumbria Intercontinental and will compete for the England title on April 8 at the Palace Hotel in Manchester.

She added: “I am really excited about it and I think it is a great achievement to represent Cumbria in two finals.

“I hope I get the chance to bring an England crown back to Cumbria.”

Three national winners will be chosen from England, Scotland and Wales to move on to the international competition.

She will be compete against 34 other women for the England title. They will all complete an interview before modelling day wear, swim wear and evening dresses for the judges.
