Cherelle was one of 15 contestants chosen for the final .
Due to the pandemic, the Miss England semi final contest was held virtually. Contestants were invited to submit up to 3 videos including an introduction, a catwalk and a talent video.

The Chosen Hill Churchdown schoolgirl started singing lessons at the age of 12 and now holds a grade 8 in music theatre which should stand her in good stead for the Talent round in the final of Miss England .
The current Miss England NHS Doctor Bhasha Mukherjee crowned Cherelle Miss Gloucester at a recent fashion shoot for TO THE NINES Boutique who are the official eveningwear partner for Miss England . So far the Miss England contest has raised over £30,000 for charity this year by continuing to run the contest virtually .
Cherelle said “I am beyond grateful to have been crowned Miss Gloucester and cannot wait for the opportunities that will come with it, whether it be fundraising for local charities or further career talks in local schools. Hopefully I can be a role model for the young girls in Gloucester on their path to being the best versions of themselves.”
Cherelle worked at Hazlewoods LLP for 7 years, starting as an apprentice after her A Levels at Chosen Hill. She did a two year apprenticeship before doing a further three years of exams to become a chartered accountant.
“My first job was in a shop called Chez Rose in Gloucester, a shabby chic furniture and décor store which is included in the pictures. It is still running now and the owner is the same!”
Cherelle is sponsored by the Linda Mary Clark Memorial award in Miss England. The next Miss England final will be held on the 16th& 17thApril 2021 where a winner will be selected for the 70thMiss World final
