A MATLOCK beauty is a step closer to being named Miss England after coming through her regional finals.

Alexa Dietsch, 20, from Two Dales, was named runner-up during the competition in Derby and automatically qualified for the semi-finals in Leicester in May.

Only ten of 60 semi-finalists will go through to the final.

Alexa said: “I was absolutely ecstatic when they announced my name, and my family literally jumped out of their seats. It was definitely by far the best and most memorable moment of my life. I cannot wait for the semi finals in May. I am so grateful for this opportunity and the support from my family and friends has been fantastic.”

The former Highfields pupil is also being sponsored by Matlock’s Black Hippo Lounge bar.
