A WIRRAL teenager is set to compete for the prestigious title of Miss England next month.

Molly McEntee-Morris, 17 was crowned Miss Liverpool earlier this year which means she is automatically entered to the Miss England competition.

Molly initially entered Miss Liverpool on a whim having never competed in any modelling or beauty pageants before.

She said: “When I entered Miss Liverpool, I never thought for one minute I would win.

“I’m just a normal girl, I looked at all the other beautiful girls who had entered and was sure one of them would have won.”

“I couldn’t believe it when I heard my name get called out.”

Despite the glamour that comes with winning the title, Molly has chosen to remain in her role working at local McDonalds in Bromborough.

She has also kept up her dedication for charity work, raising money to several causes close to her heart.

“To compete in Miss England you have to complete charity work, but that is something I have always done.” Molly added.

“That is the best thing about winning the Miss Liverpool title- it means I am able to use my title to help promote and raise money for deserving charities.”

“I have previously raised money for Zoë’s place which is a Liverpool based charity and we all support the beauty with a purpose, helping disadvantaged children too.”

The Miss England competition takes place on July 20 and 21, at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Southport.

Molly, from Higher Bebington will compete against 50 other contestants from across the country for the title and a prize package believed to be worth £25k.

“I’m so happy I won Miss Liverpool, I was still completing my A-level exams at the time so I haven’t had a free day since I won but I don’t mind.

“I’m excited for the Miss England competition, it is creeping up so fast and will be here before I know it- there is still a lot to plan for it.”

“Just the experience alone will be fantastic.”

“Usually I lack confidence, but meeting the other contestants has helped, I am also taking part in a tv presenting course which I am hoping will help give my confidence a boast.”

The contest will feature a series of qualifying rounds that include sports/fitness, fund-raising, talent & an eco-fashion show.

For the talent round, Molly will be demonstrate a boxing routine, which Liverpool Boxer Nick Quigley has given her tips towards.

Molly has organised a trek up Snowdon to raise funds for the Beauty with a Purpose Charity, the Miss World Organisation Charity.

This charity helps disadvantaged children around the world.
