Miss England hopefuls do a bikini shoot, and that is literally the whole story

The Miss England Beach Beauty swimwear round was in Torquay today. Here are some pictures of the action unfolding


14 Miss England hopefuls stood on a yacht in Torquay today. Oh, and they weren’t wearing much.

The English Riviera town played host to the Miss England Beach Beauty swimwear round.

They are are all hoping to emulate reigning Miss England Kirsty Heslewood, who joined them for a photoshoot on the deck of a luxury yacht.

The young models lapped up the sun before heading to nearby Torre Abbey Beach for more photos.

The line-up included Carina Tyrrell, who is studying medicine at Cambridge, and Exeter graduate Charlotte Giles.

They are among 60 finalists who have been picked from heats across the country and a final winner will be crowned in June.

The annual beauty contest is staged in Torquay where last year local MP Adrian Sanders said it was an “own goal” for women.

His comments were dismissed by a previous winner Charlotte Holmes, from Torpoint, Cornwall, who said this was precisely the sort of stereotyped view the girls were hoping to challenge.

So, like, here are all the pictures and that.
