Have you got the X factor? Could you be Sheffield's next top model?

ARE you as hot as this girl? Or as much of a hunk as him?

These two - Natalie Fowler, aged 25, from Frecheville and Kyle Hindley, aged 23, from the city centre - are just a couple of the wannabe pin-ups who have entered a competition to find Sheffield's next top model.

And if you think you could give them a run for their manicured pouts then organisers, who are offering a contract with city firm DK Model Management to two winners, want to hear from you.

"Modelling isn't just about great looks - it's just as important to have that X factor, so we'd encourage everyone to enter," says Katie Gollick who is organising the event as part of her Sheffield Hallam University leisure management course.

The competition has already seen dozens of guys and girls send pictures of themselves to the 22-year-old and her two partners, Jenny Symons and Farah Barakat, both 21.

The shots will be placed on a special Facebook site with voting opened to the public.

Then the 10 males and 10 females with the most votes will take part in a live final at the city's Walkabout bar, in Carver Street, on March 10.

Profits from the event will be donated to Barnardo's and Mencap.

Deadline for entering is January 31. Details at www.sheffieldsnexttopmodel.moonfruit.com/#/about/4546634550.
