After the pandemic restrictions caused the live event to be postponed three times, organisers now plan to stage the contest online instead.

Each participant will supply their own video of themselves, which will consist of an introduction, catwalk to camera wearing an evening dress or cocktail dress, and a choice of a talent or fundraising round.

For the talent round, the contestants can choose anything to perform on their video.

This can be singing, juggling, dancing, or anything which they consider is their talent.

For the fundraising round, the contestants can create a fundraising event to talk about on camera.

All funds raised will go to the Miss World/ Miss England ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ charitable organisation.

Miss Lincolnshire organiser, Phil Green, said: “It is disappointing not to be able to stage a live event with an audience.

“However the event will be broadcast online for everyone to get involved in choosing a winner with a public vote. There will also be a panel of professional judges. “From a combination of marks awarded for each video round, through judging and the public vote, a winner will be crowned Miss Lincolnshire.”

The date of the Miss Lincolnshire online broadcast will be announced later this year.

The winner of the contest will go on to the Miss England Final in April 2021, which then leads to the Miss World contest.

The reigning Miss England, Bhasha Mukherjee, is a doctor at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston.
