After her crowning, she said, “It’s like a dream, it’s so surreal – I really can’t believe it.” She also added that although she was a participant of Miss Northern Ireland 2015, she never expected to win. Leanne got £5,000 as a prize money from Therapie, a car for a year from Fiat group, Miss World Wardrobe from Blush and a modelling contract.
