Having just been crowned Miss Northern Ireland 2013, Meagan Green was jumping for joy yesterday.

But rather than toasting her success in the beauty pageant the previous evening, the Lisburn woman got straight to work in her new role.

She still managed to look the part in a combination of tiara, heels and overalls, but rather than painting the town red, she picked up a paintbrush to help put the finishing touches to the newly revamped Malone Lodge Hotel.

The University of Ulster student (23) beat 25 other beauties to this year's crown, winning thousands of pounds worth of prizes including an all-expenses paid trip to Miss World in Indonesia, a Kia car from Downey's, a wardrobe of designer dresses for Miss World and a cover shoot with IN! magazine. "I'm in a state of shock, I am just so happy and delighted to be taking over the crown and representing Northern Ireland," she said.

"Being part of the competition has been amazing. I'm thrilled and I plan to enjoy every single minute of the next year."

The gala final was a glitzy affair hosted by ex-Miss Northern Ireland and TV presenter Zoe Salmon, alongside news anchorman Marc Mallett.

The runner-up was Anna Henry (18) from Portglenone, and Belfast girl Emma Ward (22) came third. Both are students also.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
