Olivia decision nears

Ollivia Midgley

The waiting will soon be over for journalism student Olivia Midgley, a finalist in the televised Spirit of Beauty contest.

She will discover at a special ceremony on Monday, November 1 whether she has won a starring lead in a TV commercial and the chance to present with Lorraine Kelly on LK Today.

The 19-year-old Sheffield undergraduate appeared on television during October as one of six women shortlisted from more than 5,000 who entered the competition being run by haircare brand Pantene Pro-V in conjunction with GMTV and Premier Model Management.

Online voting by the public and a panel of judges will decide the winner.

Leeds-born Olivia has been keeping colleagues, family and friends up-to-date with a weekly diary of her exciting time with GMTV here on the Department of Journalism Studies website.
