Burnham-On-Sea woman competes for Miss England crown

A student from Burnham-On-Sea is bidding to become Miss England.

Emily Sanders, 21, is one of 30 contestants competing in the first Miss England semi-final heat for 2015.

The public vote is currently underway and Emily is seeking the support of local people to secure a place in the semi-finals next June.

Emily is hoping to win by being voted one of the top three in her heat.

If she does reach the top three her fate will then be in the hands of the panel of judges, who include Miss England 2013, Kirsty Heslewood, who will decide who is the most photogenic, and will receive a place in the semi-final.

The current Miss England is Carina Tyrrell, 24, from Cambridge, a student doctor who will be representing England at Miss World in London on December 14th. Miss England is the only competition in the country to send its winner in to Miss World, which has a top prize of $100,000.

The winner of this heat will go on to compete in the Miss England 2015 semi-final, where she will be in with the chance of securing a place in the grand final next year.

The ultimate winner of Miss England 2015 will spend her year raising awareness for various charities and will receive a whole host of prizes worth £30,000, including a luxury holiday to Mauritius the dream holiday destination and a place in Miss World 2015.

In the last three years over £550,000 has been raised by Miss England contestants to help disadvantaged children around the UK.

Emily needs local support to help her win the Miss England Semi Final heat title. Readers can vote for Emily by texting MISS ENGH11 to 63333 or vote from a landline, which is 0901 3078571 and press 11 when prompted. Text votes cost 50p while landline votes cost 52p plus standard network charge. The voting line opened on 3rd October and will finish on Sunday 30th Novvember 2014 AT at midnight.
