Archived News - Miss England
Bedfordshire's top beauty is set to be among 70 stunners competing for the title of Miss England today and tomorrow.
Karlene Vardy, 21, of Grange Way, Houghton Regis, was crowned Miss Bedfordshire after beating 17 other contestants at a ceremony in Eaton Bray.
Now the budding R&B singer is donning her riara once more to take part in the national beauty contest in Leicester, whose winner will go on to represent England at Miss World in September.
Miss England will win £5,000 worth of jewellery, with six regional runners-up receiving a £300 bracelet each. To support Karlene, text Miss Bedfordshire to 84205.
Each vote will cost £1 and the two contestants who receive the most text votes will be fast-tracked to the Miss England grand finale tomorrow.
