Miss Lincolnshire winners crowned

Congratulations Paige and Milly!

Miss Lincolnshire was crowned at the weekend in the glamorous surroundings of the ballroom of the Earl of Doncaster Hotel.

The supportive and enthusiastic audience cheered the girls on as the Lincolnshire title went to 23-year-old Paige Allen from Crowland, in the south of Lincolnshire.

After studying A-levels in Philosophy and Ethics, Paige had been taking time out by working in Greece throughout the summer, and returned especially to enter the contest.

Runner up was Milly Everatt, who comes from a farming family in Eastoft, North Lincolnshire. As well as being a keen show-jumper, Milly has recently taken and passed her HGV licence.

Millie Hinchcliffe, 18, from Leeds, also won Miss Yorkshire. Millie, who loves anything sporty, was really in her element when it came to the sportswear round, choosing to wear a golfing outfit.

Millie is currently studying pharmacy at university, and hope to one day work as a pharmacist.

The Miss Yorkshire runner-up was the Jeniffer Carless from Gilberdyke, East Yorkshire. Jennifer who works tirelessly doing charitable work, was diagnosed recently with a medical problem, which means she has to wear a catheter, which she was more than happy to talk about during the show.

Both Miss Yorkshire and Miss Lincolnshire will now take their place in the Miss England Final in October, which then leads to Miss World.

Organisers of Miss England were so impressed with the ladies in the regional final that Miss England CEO, Angie Beasley, announced that both runners-up – Millie and Jennifer, would also qualify for the Miss England Final.

The contestants at the weekend all took part in 4 rounds of the contest – interviews with the judges, black dress round, sportswear and evening dress, including an interview with host, Phil Green.

Judges included the previous Miss Lincolnshire, Rebecca Jay Fearn from Skegness, Miss Yorkshire, Imani-Jayne Botham from Richmond and Miss England 2020 – Bhasha Bukherjee.
