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 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. She was cast as a character called Creech due to her "distinctive" looks. She 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]
