21yr old top model, Sophia Adams, only recently won a 1 year modelling contract, but this is a far cry form how her story began.

With a size 16 frame and 32JJ breasts, Sophia Adams nothing like the slender models that strut the catwalks.

So when the 21-year-old won a year’s modelling contract, she was far more shocked than her bullies ever could have been.

The trainee police officer knew the odds were against her when she entered the contest for plus-size lingerie brand, .

Sophia endured years of cruel taunts - “fatty”, “man-beast”, “whale”and even “big jugs” from a young age and never imagined she would have the courage to step out on stage in a bikini.

After beating more than 1,000 curvy contestants, Sophia nabbed the top spot and prestigious prize in the company’s annual .

Now modelling agencies up and down the country have made her offers, all keen to snap her up while her boyfriend of five years, Adrian Antonie, a council tax worker, remains her “rock”.

The half-Greek, half-Iranian beauty says: “Now I’ve won, I hope all the nasty, horrible bullies flick through the magazines and see me. I’ll have the last laugh now I’m a plus-size model.”

Sophia admits she thought she was too big even for a plus-size competition.

She recalls: “There were girls at the auditions with stunning bodies but when they announced I had won, I couldn’t believe it. It was madness — it’s still surreal even now".

Do you think Sophia is too big?
