The trip was a treat in itself for the reigning Skegness Carnival Queen but proud mum, Katie, said winning the holiday was ‘overwhelming’..

“We were invited by ITV after someone nominated Summer as an unsung hero for her charity work,” said Katie. “We won a Takeaway getaway, which is either a seven-night beach holiday or cruise.

"We are all still in shock. It was so nice for the show to recognise so many people for the work they do within their community.

"It's so overwhelming.”
