Brummie girls not pretty enough
Beauty contest officials chose a model from Stoke-on-Trent to represent Birmingham because they could not find anyone pretty enough from the city. Miss Great Britain organisers picked Sophie Wilson to represent the city in a heat despite her only connection being an ex-boyfriend who lived there.
The 18-year-old IT student said she thought it was unfair on Birmingham's beauties.
The competition was later won by Rachael Tennant, from Aberdeen.
