Introducing the new Miss Liverpool City
WE have had the honour of interviewing the new Miss Liverpool City Region
2017. This year, holding the brand new title is Elli Wilson, 17, from West
Kirby, was crowned the
winner of this Miss
England, beating 19 other hopeful contestants. The event was held
at the The Olympia, West Derby, on 19 May 2017. She is now due to go to the Miss
England finals that are to be held in Birmingham, over 14 July to 16 July 2017.
This was her 1st press interview and as you can see, she did amazingly well. If
you want to meet her personally you can meet her at Woodvale Rally
on 17 June 2017, along with X-Factor's and former Brookside star, Ray Quinn.
It's also worth noting that last year's winner was Preston's Elizabeth Grant, so
let's hope we can retain the crown in the North West... Also if you did not
already know, should Elli get through to become Miss England, the next stage is
the Miss World competition, this year, in China!
The search for Southport's
entry to the Miss England contest has begun...
MISS England is not just a beauty contest. Proud to be different and
unlike the traditional modelling competitions where contestants are just judged
on looks alone, It has been Angie Beasley's objective in the last 15 years to
move away from the traditional concept of a bathing beauty judging women just on
looks and create charitable and positive role models.
The current Miss England is 20 year old Elizabeth Grant, (pictured below) a 6ft
foot student from Preston who represented England in Washington DC in Miss World
which every year has a top prize of $100k.
Over ₤1m has been raised by Miss England events in the last 6 years for
disadvantaged children here in the UK as the organisers actively encourage
contestants and the regional heat organisers to raise funds as part of the
competition. In Southport, in 2016, the contest final raised over ₤58k!
