Trainee takes a hat trick

Trainee of the Year winner Jade Bolam has swept up double the glory, winning the NIBA Best Selfie photo competition with her shot from the NIBA Convention Gala Dinner on Tuesday night.

The photo was taken with X-Factor star Nathaniel, who offered delegates shoe-tapping entertainment at the long-awaiting social event of the year.
