Lincoln’s Ivy Watson was last night crowed the winner of Britain’s Next Top Model.

The 22-year-old has won a contract with Models1, a spread in Cosmopolitan magazine, campaigns with Misguided and Show Beauty, and a year’s supply of free gadgets and beauty products.

Ivy beat Eleanor Sippings and Kira MacLean in the 12th series of the Lifetime show.

She previously attended Sir Robert Pattison Academy and lives in North Hykeham.

Ivy said in an Instagram post: “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now. I’m actually speechless. This has been my dream for so long and I’m so pleased my hard work has paid off.”

There’s certainly a sense of festive cheer in Lincoln!

We went out onto High Street to ask you for your Christmas wish for the city.

There were a number of positive wishes offered by the residents.

One said: “Peace, health and happiness.”

Another resident said: “It stays calm, quiet and peaceful.”

One shopper took a much more light-hearted approach as he waited for his partner.

His Christmas wish was: “For my wife to come out of Primark.”

Another resident hoped for “the bus station to be open, as soon as possible.”
