PIC BY DAN ROWLANDS / MERCURY PRESS (PICTURED: CHANTELLE PARKER) A girl who became too scared to leave her home after developing a fear of the outdoors has fought her fears and become a beauty queen. Chantelle Parker, 23 developed agoraphobia when she was 19 years old after suffering severe panic attacks and anxiety. The former Peaks college student became so afraid of the outdoors she was unable to even walk to her local newsagents or shopping centre. But after four years of isolation Chantelle finally faced up to her fear after spotting an advertisement for Miss Great Britain who then invited her to be in the pageant. SEE MERCURY COPY
