HOLLY Finlay is looking for your votes in her bid to be crowned one of the most beautiful women in the country.

The 19-year-old from Amersham is hoping to make it through to the semi finals of the Miss England competition, having been selected for two different heats by the judging panel.

Voting opened for one of the categories this week, and she's now looking for your help in booking a semi final slot in March.

Holly has tried modelling before but at 5ft3ins she's been turned away several times in spite of her looks.

That led to her entering the Miss England competition, where she's been shortlisted for the Miss Every Model and Miss Fresh Photogenic awards.

Holly, a Film and TV Studies student at Regents University in London, said: "I decided to go for Miss England because I like the fact it's about beauty on the inside and having a personality.

"My mum has always wanted me to do something like this. I have the right look but I was rejected from a lot of agencies because I wasn't tall enough."

Cast your vote by going to www.missengland.info and select the 'Miss Fresh Photogenic Heat 4' link on the Vote Now page, or go to the Miss England Facebook Page and 'like' her photo.
