Voters in our exclusive poll said that they want the 20-year-old from Southampton to be chosen by Elle Macpherson and the rest of the judges in tonight's (October 1) final.
However, Anita only won by a margin of 0.46%, collecting 41.34% of the vote to initial leader Emma Grattidge's 40.88%.
Third finalist Letitia Herod was considered by you to be an outsider for the title of Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model, raking in just 17.78%.
Speaking to DS ahead of the final, Anita argued that she should win Next Top Model because of the progress she has made throughout the competition.
"I don't ever let anything get me down. I've got back up and tried again," she said.
"I think out of everyone I've improved the most and I've proved that someone who hasn't had any modelling experience before can come on the show and do really well.
"I think I've got confident and I really did grow into a model."
The Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model final airs tonight at 9pm on Sky Living.
