Anna's Original letter to The Afternoon Show in April 2005:-"Dear Afternoon Show Team,

A saw your advertisement for Christmas makeover's and I thought I should give it a go. I'm 28 years old, 29 in February. I have included some photos of me, which aren't too good. I'm not good at make up, hair or clothes. I look after my two children Selena, seven and Brian three. I never take care of myself or treat myself. I would love a makeover and learn how to look nice and pretty.
The photos aren't that great as I don't have many, I don't like having photos taken as I don't think I look very good in them. I hope you will consider me, it would be a nice treat. I would also like to give my friends and family a surprise with a new me!

Thanking you,
Anna Teahan
