Jamaican beauty queen is crowned Miss World

Jamaica’s Toni-Ann Singh has been crowned this year’s Miss World during glamorous celebrations in London today. 

Stunning Miss World hopefuls took to the stage in native dress this afternoon as they competed to take home the crown in the 69th annual competition. 

Some 111 contestants from countries including Scotland, Japan, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago donned costumes reflecting their homelands as they performed at the ExCeL convention centre in east London.

The competition, hosted by Peter Andre and actress Megan Young, concludes a three-week festival in which contestants competed in a series of fast-track events to earn a spot in the top 30.

These included challenges in multimedia, sport and talent which took the hopefuls on a ‘journey across some of London’s most iconic landmarks taking in its rich culture and heritage’, according to the Miss World website.

Winner Toni-Ann Singh was crowned by last year’s winner Mexico’s Vanessa Ponce de Leon during the ceremony. 

Today, the glamorous contestants gathered on stage at the ExCeL centre in ball gowns as they were welcomed in an opening ceremony which featured a performance from Kerry Ellis.

The beauty queens then changed into colourful costumes indicative of their native countries as they performed in the final, which was judged by a panel led by Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan.
