A STUDENT from the University of Worcester says she is “determined to do better next year” after missing out on the title of Miss England.

Isobel Lines, 18, who studies PE and sports coaching science at the University, travelled to Newcastle on August 1 for the national final of the competition.

The final consisted of several different rounds, including one which had never been done previously before; the bare-faced round, where the women were required to arrive and complete a catwalk with no make-up on to steer away from stereotypes and aim towards looking at natural beauty.

Miss Lines said this was a hard round for her, given her previous struggles with acne.

Additionally, there was an eco round, where Miss Lines made a completely recyclable dress out of rosettes to represent mental health.

Other rounds included a talent round, a sports round, and even a tv presenter round where the finalists could interview someone of their choice and be judged upon their presentation skills.

Taking to Twitter after the final, she said: “Ah wow, where do I even start?

“For three years, this was everything I had dreamed of.

“It took me three long years of hard work and determination, working with incredible individuals and experiencing opportunities which I thought were never possible.”

As well as reaching the final of Miss England 2019, Miss Lines is also known for her fundraising efforts, raising more than £1,000 for Papyrus, a national suicide prevention charity, which she chose after a school friend took their own life.

To raise money, she and a group of friends climbed the Malvern Hills, Miss Lines taking on the challenge while blindfolded.

This year’s Miss England winner was Bhasha Mukherjee, 23, who recently graduated from the University of Nottingham to become a doctor.

Miss Mukherjee has two different medical degrees and an IQ of 146.
