A PTA chairman forgot her inhibitions and joined hundreds of women in bikinis and heels in the UK's first ever female fitness pageant.
Jo Rumm and her gym buddies Sue Hoad, Tasmin Maag, and Vanessa Tanner from Crowborough Freedom Leisure Centre got out of their comfort zone and competed in this year's Galaxy Universe competition.
Mother-of-four Mrs Rumm, 35, who is the PTA chairman at St John's School in Crowborough, said: "I decided to do it because it is different from what I do every day.
"As a busy mum of four organising activities for the school, to then being on stage in front of hundreds of people in a bikini was so far removed from what people expect from me.
"It was a really positive experience."
The four took part in the Miss World meets GI Jane event at St Albans Arena on October 20, entering categories such as Yummy Mummy and Beach Body.
