A 20-YEAR-OLD advertising recruiter from Chingford has been crowned Miss Essex 2012.

Amber Zakrzewski, who also models part-time, scored top marks from judges including Teddy Sheringham and TOWIE star Chloe Sims.

After winning last night’s event at the TopGolf Leisure Centre in Chigwell, Amber will advance to the Miss England Finals where she will compete for a place in Miss World.

More than 80 contestants took part in last night’s contest, but it was Amber who caught the judges’ eye, scoring top marks in every round of the competition.

After taking the title, she said: “I’m so thrilled to be Miss Essex 2012.

“I was shocked when the judges called my name.”

Glamour model and reality TV star, Chloe said: “All the girls were well reem, and made it a tough night for the judges.”

But, she added: “Amber shone out, and will make a great role model for Essex girls.”

Former Man Utd and Tottenham star Teddy Sheringham, said: "All the girls looked fantastic and no-one fell over on the catwalk!”
