Charlotte Campbell First Single Mother To Be Miss Great Britain Contestant, Sixty Miss Great Britain final contestants have braved freezing weather to parade around Weston-super-Mare beach in skimpy swimsuits.
The models – who are hoping to win the Miss GB contest on Saturday night – put on one-piece costumes to pose for photographs on the beach. Among the contestants hoping to walk off with the beauty crown is single mother Charlotte Campbell. Miss Campbell, 23, who gave birth to son Bobby two years ago, joins four other mothers – who are married – in reaching the final.
The black belt in taekwando was recently crowned Miss York City, is a qualified pole dance teacher and has even set up her own fitness club.
She said: “I definitely like to think of myself as a role model representing other single women around the country that have got young children, especially single mothers that are raising their children alone.”
Unmarried mothers are being allowed to enter Miss Great Britain for the first time in a move to modernise the oldest beauty contest in the UK.
