Relationship to Margaret Garrett: Daughter
I am known for my modelling career which I have been doing since I was 17, when I was spotted by a national newspaper. They suggested that I enter a competition which I went on to win and things just snowballed from there.
I really enjoyed modelling - it was a great career. Like any job it had its highs and lows, but for the main I learnt a lot and really enjoyed it.
Some of the highlights include winning the Miss Great Britain title in 2008. I was also the Face of the British Formula 1 Grand Prix and I got to work with Lewis Hamilton which was amazing.
I was also the face of Jovani evening wear and they did all their shoots in New York. They flew me over there three times a year in business class - it was a great experience.
Sometimes I miss the modelling days as it was very exciting and I loved the travel and the buzz of it all.
However, I am still involved in the industry, albeit behind the scenes now as a make-up artist.
I trained with leading artist Paddy McGurgan, who writes the Belfast Telegraph Weekend Magazine's beauty page, and am now fully qualified. I love my job now.
My mum and I have always been close - she is more like a best friend. We do everything together and I could talk to her about anything. When we go out at weekends, my friends are always asking 'where is Margo'?
My mum is so serene and calm and has a way of approaching a tricky situation and calming things down - which is a characteristic I wish I had inherited.
She sees the good in everyone and gives everyone a chance. I really admire that characteristic as, having spent so many years modelling, I became very cynical.
I try to spend as much time with mum as possible as she helps me to see the best in situations and to have a more positive outlook.
I feel very blessed to have the relationship I do with my mum. We spend time doing girlie things like going for lunch or having spa days along with my sister Lisa.
As I get older I realise how hard my parents have worked and the sacrifices they have made for my sister, brother and I. So, last year I sent my parents to Paris as a thank you for all they have done for me.

Occupation: Classroom assistant
Relationship to Gemma Garrett: Mother
We are a very close family and spend a lot of time together. I am married to Stephen and we have three children, Lisa (38), Gemma (34) and Stevie (28).
When my children were younger and growing up, I was at home with them. I married young and had my children soon afterwards. When they went to school, I decided to retrain as a classroom assistant.
Now, I work in a local nursery in Dundonald, with children aged three and four, and I love it.
Outside work, my family is my life.
Last week we all went bowling together and it was great fun. We like to get out and about as a family.
I cook for all of them at weekends when they come home to mum and dad's house.
It's the same at Christmas - everyone comes round to me for dinner. Gemma and I are more like friends than mother and daughter. We do everything together.
Stephen and I were always keen that the children went to university, but when Gemma was offered the chance to model, she choose a different path.
Thankfully things went well for her and she has had a brilliant career. We are very proud of her.
She has had amazing opportunities and has always brought glitz and glamour into our lives.
She is a great daughter and is generous to a fault.
As a friend she is loyal and expects the same from others.
Growing up, Gemma always loved to be posing in front of the camera. She loved the limelight - so it was no surprise she chose the career she did.
I have always been in the front row at every stage of her career and supported her all the way.
