Gemma Dawn Garrett (born 25 September 1981, Belfast, Northern Ireland) is a former holder of the titles Miss Great Britain[1] and Miss Belfast. She is also the official face of the Formula One British Grand Prix at Silverstone.[2]

She appeared with Dolph Lundgren in the film Direct Contact, which was scheduled for release in 2008. Garrett's modelling career has seen her being featured in such newspapers as ZOO, Nuts, The Sun and the Daily Star.

Garrett stood as a candidate in the Crewe and Nantwich by-election on 22 May 2008, representing the "Beauties for Britain" party, formed recently by herself,[3] in the intention, in her own words, of "making Westminster less dowdy and down-trodden".[4] She came in tenth with 113 votes, 0.27% of the total.

She contested the Haltemprice and Howden by-election following the resignation of its MP, David Davis, representing the 'Miss Great Britain Party'.[5] Her candidacy attracted 521 votes, placing her in fifth position behind the Conservative Party, Green Party, English Democrats and National Front Britain for the British.[6]

Garrett currently writes for Sunday Life newspaper and Fate magazine. In a poll named Britain's sexiest blondes Garrett took 3rd place behind Keeley Hazell and Eva.[citation needed]
