THIS is the voluptuous winner of Cambridge University's 'best bum' 2017 award - who admits she has a "considerable a**e and thighs".

The undergraduate - named only as 'Vita' - believes her win over far slimmer entrants is a victory for "body acceptance".

Her saucy winning shot, leaning naked against an oak tree, won 24.32 per cent of the vote among readers of The Tab student newspaper.

"I don't have the most athletic figure and I have quite a considerable arse and thighs," she said.

"It says a lot about how far the world has come in body acceptance.

"I have worked hard to accept my body. I wanted to prove that to myself by doing something I wouldn't usually do.

"I didn't even expect the photo would be in the top 10 - let alone be the winner.

"I've never been so proud of something like that. I'm probably more proud of that than getting into Cambridge."

Vita only decided to enter the competition when her friend - a professional photographer - asked her the night before.

She said: "During the shoot, it was so cold and my feet were wet. You can't notice in the photo but the photos were taken near a football pitch during a football match.

"I don't think they saw us - we would have noticed if they had noticed us.

"It was also next to the train line and every time a train was about to go by, the photographer threw my coat at me to give me some modesty!"

She took victory by a one per cent margin ahead of second place 'Virginia', who polled 23.08 per cent with a similar pose in a tree.

Now Vita's curvaceous derrière has become a star on campus with friends commending her for her boldness.

She said: "Everyone who has seen my photos has been so positive. I have seen comments online saying that I'm fat but I'm going to ignore the trolls.

"I know there are comments saying that Cambridge students are 'snowflakes' and not working but I think it's sad and narrow-minded to call us that!

"It's an old-fashioned point of view - I'm going to focus on the positives.

"I can understand why they would concerned but at the same time everyone was young once and quite a few people see their a**e!"

Vita added: "When I told my mum, I was really worried because she's quite conservative but she thought it was hilarious!

"She even showed the photo to my old teachers and they thought it was hilarious too."
