TEENAGER Ella Walker got her big break on the fashion runway while waiting at an airport.

The 17-year-old had never set foot on a catwalk when a talent spotter for a modelling agency saw her with her family in the departure lounge after their holiday flight was delayed.

‘It was such a crazy thing to happen, I couldn’t believe it. My family were really excited and my sister was saying it was amazing,’ she said.

One year on and Ella, from Billericay, Essex, is working with Scotland-based VSO Models.

‘London Fashion Week in particular is a really busy season. I spend a lot of my days going up to London and after school I will get on the train to go up there,’ she said.

‘It is quite difficult when you have got a lot of school work but it is so much fun. I do most of my school work on the train.’

Supermodel Kate Moss, 44, was spotted at an airport, aged 14, by Sarah Doukas of Storm agency.
