Selfie lover gets kicked off professional shoot within ten minutes when she got drunk to calm her nerves

A SELFIE lover who won a place on a professional modelling shoot was kicked off the set after downing half a bottle of vodka to calm her nerves.

Amy Enright, 25, was arrested just ten minutes into the 10am slot after getting drunk in the dressing room while getting ready.

Police were called when a stylist was unable to do her hair and makeup because she was so intoxicated.

Enright, who has 1,300 followers on Instagram, was also slurring her words and struggling to sit upright for photos.

She later claimed she ''rarely leaves home'' due to an anxiety condition and had drunk half a bottle of vodka since breakfast before the shoot in Manchester.

An unnamed child she was looking after at the time was taken to relatives.

At Manchester Magistrates Court, Enright, who lives with her parents in Sale near Altrincham, sobbed as she admitted being drunk in charge of a child and was fined £120.

Prosecutor Peter Conoray said that Enright, who is currently furloughed from a part time job, “initially appeared to be okay” when she arrived at the shoot on August 5.

He said: “But from the point that she sat down to get prepared for the shoot, she was asking to go in and out of the private changing room.

''The attendant at the studio was beginning to struggle to do her hair because the defendant became increasingly intoxicated, slurring her words and struggling to sit upright.

“She was in the studio approximately for 10 minutes and at this point was asked to leave because of her behaviour.

''A colleague walked the defendant and child out and a couple of minutes later she returned as she’d forgot some of her belongings.



“Workers contacted the police as they were concerned for the welfare of the child.

''Police attended and saw the defendant and straight away on the first indication could see she was very unsteady and seemed to be confused as to why the police wanted to speak.

“Her speech was very slurred and she was struggling to string a complete sentence together.

“She initially said her last drink was at 1am in the morning but officers were not convinced and she was asked again when she had last drunk and at this point she said around 6 or 7am.

“Officers searched her bag and found half a bottle of vodka.''

Enright’s defence lawyer Karl Benson said: ''The defendant rarely leaves her house and has recently separated from her partner.

“She was given a voucher for a photo studio to have some photos taken but she didn’t feel she would be able to leave the house to go to the place and unfortunately drank before.

"She went to the appointment and was taken by her mother who took her in the car.

'A GREAT DEAL OF REMORSE'

''She did take a bottle of vodka with her and consumed some of that as she found the experience overwhelming.

''She does accept she struggled to speak to the officer and that may be partly due to intoxication and due to social anxiety.''

Mr Benson added: ''The defendant is not an alcoholic and does not drink every day but she drinks sometimes with her parents at home.

“Drinking on this occasion was due to the fact she didn’t feel capable of going out merely to get a photo taken at a studio. She’s very introverted and has no friends and doesn’t go out and she made a mistake by having alcohol.

''She is eager to get help for her difficulties. She has a social anxiety disorder and extreme anxiety and panic attacks and is a very vulnerable young lady. She has a great deal of remorse and I don’t think this lady wishes to come back to the court ever again.”

Enright was ordered to pay £119 in costs and surcharges.

JP Larry Collier told her: ''This was a relatively serious offence. The police described you as being very unsteady on your feet and confused and smelling of alcohol which indicated to us that you were drunk.

''I’m not going to go into a lecture but you do have a duty of care when you are with a child and you have failed in that duty.''
