Winning an RTE reality show can very often be the kiss of death. So I’m delighted Carrie Anne Burton is bucking the trend.
Since winning Irish TV show The Model Agent, the 20-year-old Downpatrick girl has gone from strength to strength.
Here she is pictured on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week recently.
“Do I get nervous? Not any more. It feels like this is what I was meant to do,” Carrie Anne told me this week.
Last season the model agent herself, Fiona Ellis, agreed, singling out Carrie Anne on The Model Agent early on due to her height, piercing blue eyes and classic bone structure. The end result was a contract with top London agency Tess Management and a globe-trotting lifestyle– she spoke to The Diary while on a job in Paris.
But does she ever hear from the girls she competed with on The Model Agent ?
“I do keep in touch with some of the girls, mainly through Facebook really, but I hardly have time to see my other friends, the ones I’ve known for ages, the way things are at the moment,” said Carrie Anne.
Now renamed The Models Scouts and featuring IMG model scouts Jeni Rose and David Cunningham, the reality show returns to RTE2 on November 2 at 9pm.
