Have you ever wondered what happens when you become Miss Great Britain?

Once that lucky winner is crowned and has the sash placed on top of her gorgeous gown what happens next?

As the longest running pageant in the UK Miss Great Britain is held in such high regard and the title itself holds prestige that has to be upheld by each winner. The Miss Great Britain title carries responsibility and a lot of history.
