Jade Topping

What do you like doing on your day off?

I am a volunteer for Age NI and when I have the chance I spend my time helping with fundraising events. Of course, like any woman I enjoy nothing more than shopping, relaxing, going to the gym and visiting family and friends.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?

It would have to be The Plough Inn, HIllsborough, they serve a selection of delicious gourmet burgers and always have great entertainment.

What has been your proudest moment?

Winning the Miss Pretty Mary’s heat and getting into the Miss Northern Ireland final.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?

To date, my first Miss NI heat at Cafe Vaudeville, as I had no idea what to expect but it was such an enjoyable experience.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?

I love high street fashion but also like the odd designer purchase.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?

It’s a lot of money to spend on myself it would have to be shared around with family, friends and charities.

What was your most embarrassing moment?

It would have to be my sister’s birthday when she had just bought her new house and invited some of her friends around before we went out. We were all getting ready and I accidently spilt fake tan all over her new carpet in front of all her friends. Oops!

What music do you like?

My choice in music would be varied but I particularly enjoy pop music.

What sports person do you most admire?

Mary Peters, she is a local woman who has put Northern Ireland on the map for her great athletic career and her support to local charities.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?

All of them have been amazing as long as there has been sun, sea and family. My dream holiday would be a shopping trip to New York, and then onto Hawaii for some relaxation.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?

Of course winning Miss Northern Ireland would be up there, but I would also love to travel the world.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?

Victoria Beckham, I would love to spend a day shopping with her and hopefully she would bring David along!!
