AN ALVECHURCH teenager hopes to be crowned the beauty of Birmingham.
Abbie Dean, who works at Chapters hairdressers in Bromsgrove, has made it through to the finals of Miss Birmingham after being spotted at the Clothes Show Live.
The 17-year-old was urged to sign up for the competition despite never taking part in a pageant in her life.
She was then picked by a panel of judges to be one of 40 out of 400 to make it to the finals.
As part of the competition she will be holding a fund-raising event at Alvechurch Village hall on Saturday, February 27, where all the money will go to the charity Beauty with a Purpose.
