Emily previously told the Derbyshire Times she has never done anything like this before and is 'nervous' and 'excited'.

She said: "The message I would like to promote is that no matter what you have been through in the past you can always make a change and bring positivity to your life.

"Winning for me would be amazing.

"I've always wanted to do something like this, I just lacked the confidence.

"I'm ready to go out there and face the world with everything I've got."

She added: "I have never done anything like this before so it is new for me and something I am nervous but so excited for.”
