Hoping to follow in the footsteps of last year’s Miss Preston and Miss England Lizzy Grant, the finalists have been put through confidence and self-esteem workshops.

Three previous city winners from across the northwest will be the judges they’ll be hoping to impress with the public vote acting as the fourth judge.

And Mark Brown, Miss Preston’s regional organiser outlines what the judges will be looking for.

“We’re looking for a good role model to young girls and an ambassador for Preston.

“Lizzy has done a fantastic job and there’s some very good contestants again this year so I’m sure it’ll be a close decision.”

The woman crowned Miss Preston gets the chance to compete for Miss England at Resorts World in Birmingham.

If, like Lizzy, they were crowned Miss England they would have an all-expenses-paid trip to China for the Miss World competition.

And the 21-year-old will be at the event tomorrow to crown her successor.
