    "racing cyclist Eileen Sheridan from Walton on Thames - the eventual winner" - the racing cyclist Eileen Sheridan is a completely different girl to THIS Eileen Sheridan, (by the time of this contest the racing cyclist Eileen Sheridan was a 36-year-old mother-of-two, and was under 5ft, which this lady clearly isn't).
