CALLING all wannabe Miss Worlds.

The hunt is on for a Wearside woman to compete in the country’s biggest beauty pageant, Miss England, which is a gateway to the Miss World stage.

There’s still time for budding beauty queens to enter Miss Sunderland which is being run by city businesswoman Jodie Breeds.

The final, which will have a “beauty through the decades” theme, will take place at the Roker Hotel next April.

Finalists in the contest, which is being backed by the Echo, will strut their stuff in a bid to win the crown, which guarantees a place at next year’s Miss England final.

Jodie, who runs 24 Carat salon in Grangetown, says she thinks Sunderland has what it takes to produce the country’s top pageant princess.

“It’s such a great opportunity to be able to fly the flag for your city at Miss England and I think a Miss Sunderland could take the top title,” she said.

“The winner of Miss England goes on to Miss World which is the biggest beauty pageant in the world. We’ve had some great entrants so far and I’m really looking forward to the final.

“It has a beauty through the decades theme and will have a girl representing every decade, from the 1920s to the current day.”

In keeping with Miss England rules, entrants to Miss Sunderland must be 17-24, unmarried and have no children.

The closing date for entries is December.
