NEWTON Mearns teenager Tanya McAlister has made it to the final of her first ever beauty pageant.
The 19-year-old — a former Eastwood high school pupil — will take to the stage at the Miss Elegance pageant final, held at glitzy city centre venue 29 Private Members Club.
Tanya — entering her final year as a beauty therapy student at South Lanarkshire College next month — told The Extra: “I saw the Miss Elegance competition and just decided to apply and see what happened.
“I went along to the casting and was so happy to be selected.
“I’m really excited because it’s the first beauty pageant I’ve ever been in.”
It’s fingers crossed for Tanya at the final, which takes place on August 25.
