Miss England organiser’s couldn’t think of a more iconic and suitable location to hold the next Miss England semi final contest with the current winner Jessica Gagen, hailing from Skelmersdale Lancashire .  Director of Miss England , Angie Beasley said “We want Jessica to compete in Miss World as the reigning Miss England and we wanted to mark Jessica’s one year reign with the semi final in her home county” .

Jessica said: “The contest making an appearance in the north west is fantastic, as a lot of our past national finalists have hailed from the area.  Before becoming Miss England I was Miss Lancashire, which encompasses the city – one I used to visit annually to watch the air show on the beach!”
