An air hostess will represent Tottenham in the final of a national beauty competition.

Zehra Buzdag, of St Loy's Road, will be competing in the Galaxy Pageants UK in Lancashire in March.

The Easy Jet flight attendant, who will compete as Mrs Tottenham, said this was the first time she has ever entered a beauty competition.

Mrs Buzdag said: “I have a friend at work that is constantly going into beauty pageants and she convinced me to give it a go.

“This is the only pageant that married women and mothers are allowed to enter so I entered in the Mrs category and thought let’s just see how far I can get.”

Mrs Buzdag married five months ago and decided to represent Tottenham because she has lived in the area her entire life.

She was shortlisted after she filled in an application form and sent pictures of herself to the judges.

The air hostess added: “I was absolutely shocked when I got to the final.

“I’m really nervous about the swimsuit round so I’ve hitting the gym quite a lot.”

The final of the competition will take place in the Park Hall Hotel, Lancashire, in March.
