The contest, title owned by the Miss World organisation is organised each year by Angie Beasley, a winner of 25 beauty contests in the 1980s and has organised beauty pageants around the country on behalf of Miss World, including Miss United Kingdom, Mr UK, Miss England, Miss Scotland and Miss Wales.
The contest often attracts celebrity judges at local and national finals. Many celebrities have also judged the regional heats for the competition around the country including top glamour model Jordan, who joined the judging panel for Miss Sussex.
The Miss England competition is promoted to thousands of women around England in local media by a series of area heats held around the country.
News of the World & "Take a Break" magazine have previously sponsored contestants over the years, writing features on contestants and used the winners on the front covers. Various newspapers, including the Daily Mirror, The Times, The Daily Mail and various magazines including Teen Vogue in New York and Hello! have carried stories on local and national winners.
The winner of the Miss England competition, along with the winners of Miss Northern Ireland, Miss Scotland and Miss Wales, can compete in Miss World. The highest ranking competitor of the four constituent country entrants is then presented with the title and crown of Miss United Kingdom.
Since the pageant's inception of more than 50 years ago, no title holder had gone on to win any international contest. However several Miss England contestants had almost clinched an international crown for England, placing in the 1st runner up position for five times; once in Miss Universe, and twice each in Miss World (as Miss United Kingdom) and Miss Europe.
The 2011 event was won by Alize Lily Mounter who was classed as Miss Everymodel, she was the favourite to win the competition  since the line up was announced, runner up was Miss London Rissikat Bade. At the Miss World final, Alize won Miss World Europe and finished as 3rd runner up, making her the most successful English entrant at Miss World since 1992.
