I lost 15stone and won beauty title; SIZE 24 EMMA SLIMS TO 10 IN YEAR.

Byline: AIDAN McGURRAN

JUBILANT Emma Bates has won a beauty contest after shedding a whopping 15STONE within a year.

She's through to a national final by slimming from a flabby 26st, size 24 to a curvy size 10.

And single mum Emma, 24, hopes to add to her triumph by landing a modelling career as well.

The statuesque blonde's accolade came when she was named Face of Peterborough.

She said last night: "I still can't believe it happened. When they told me I had won, I just burst into tears."

Now she's preparing to do battle in Cardiff for the Face of the UK title later this month.

Emma, from Fletton, Cambridgeshire, piled on weight as a teenager when she was told to eat every last scrap of her huge meals at home.

Then, when she fell pregnant with daughter Jasmine four years ago, her weight ballooned a further seven stones to 26st.

Drastic action was needed, so Emma launched into a diet of salad and pasta and three weekly sessions at home with a Mr Motivator video.

Now, the boys who teased and mocked her at school are queuing up to take her out.
