Doctor by day, beauty queen by night: The medic who entered pageants to 'cure shyness' and is now competing in Miss Wales finals

A woman doctor came up with a cure for her own shyness - by becoming a beauty queen.
Hospital medic Rhianne Robinson, 24, was always nervous about meeting new people despite newly-qualifying as a doctor.
So she came up with a diagnosis to beat her shyness by putting her name forward in a beauty contest.
Brunette Rhianne was stunned when her catwalk cure worked - and she won the beauty queen crown.

Self diagnosis: Rhianne Robinson is competiting in the Miss Wales finals for a chance to compete in Miss World

Now she has been given time off from her hospital rounds to compete in the Miss Wales finals - and the chance of a place in Miss World.
Rhianne reckons her beauty queen career has turned out to be just what the doctor ordered for her daily rounds at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff.
She said: 'I've always been really shy and never confident in my appearence.
'But I like challenging myself - and thought I might try something different to bring myself out a bit more.
'I was worried I wouldn't get through so I kept it quiet from my bosses and workmates.
'But after I won I've let them know everyone is being really supportive.'
Rhianne won the Miss Rhondda Cynon Taff title to qualify for the Miss Wales final next month.
Rhianne, of Miskin, near Cardiff, She said: 'Most people think contestants are a bit ditsy but I've studied really hard and have always been a bit of a bookworm.
'But every girl loves getting dressed up, and I don't have many opportunities to put my heels on when I'm on the wards.'
Rhianne, a red belt in karate, wants to deliver the knock out blow to her 49 fellow contestants and wow the judges at the final in Cardiff.
She said: 'If I was lucky enough to win it would be incredible, but I'd have to sort out the Miss Wales commitments with the NHS trust.
'The concept of the competition is charity and fundraising and I love helping people, I think I'm a caring person.'
If Rhianne wins she will compete in Miss World in November in London.
A spokeswoman for the Miss Wales organisers said: 'Rhianne has done very well just like the other girls in the final. She proves she's bright as well as beautiful.'
