When asked how she felt about winning, Yasmina said: "It was amazing.

"I was so shocked and really didn’t think I had any chance of winning. This is my first ever pageant, I have never competed in anything like this before.

"My journey began in February when i entered and was given the title Little Miss Teen Twickenham - from then I have been raising money for charity and attending events locally."

The beauty pageant finalists also participated in photoshoots, taking part in challenges and also enjoyed a pyjama diva party.

Over 100 girls competed for three beauty pageant titles.

When asked about her plans now that she has been crowned with the title 'Little Miss Britain,' Yasmina said: "I have a full year of events to attend, raising money for charity is a big part of my duties.

"I look forward to helping others and inspiring them. If other girls wanted to enter the competition I would say don’t take yourself too seriously - this is a hobby.

"Enjoy, relax and just be yourself. No one is better than anyone else. We can all achieve our dream."
