Georgia Faye Jones (née Horsley; born 6 December 1986) won the Miss England 2007 title and the opportunity to represent England in the Miss World 2007 pageant which was held in Sanya, China on 1 December that year.

Life and career[edit]

Horsley was born in Malton, North Yorkshire. She has worked as a model and beautician. At the age of 2, Horsley was taken into hospital and treated for meningitis; the doctors and Georgia's family all believed she was fine and had recovered, but during a school health check the school nurse discovered that she was deaf in her right ear. Horsley kept quiet about her deaf ear during the Miss England trials, but, after not hearing her number as she was called to the finals, she decided it was to time to be open about it. Horsley is now actively supportive of people with deafness. She has 10 GCSEs, an A-Level in Art, two AS Levels in Geography and Sociology, a diploma in Anatomy and Physiology, and a Red Cross Therapeutic care course qualification. Before she won the title of Miss England, Horsley's aim had been to pursue a career as a media make-up artist and she was due to start a degree in design and media make-up at university. In 2013, McFly member Danny Jones, Georgia's long-term boyfriend, proposed during their holiday in Cyprus and they were married on Saturday 2nd of August 2014 in her home town of Malton, North Yorkshire.[1]

On the 17th July 2017 Georgia and Danny announced they were expecting their first child, with the feature in HELLO magazine.[2]

Baby Cooper Alf Jones was born at 1:36am on the 27th January 2018. [3]

Participation in Miss World 2007[edit]

Horsley had her success, at one of the fast track events held during the pageant, when she was one of the top 18 semi-finalists of the Miss World Talent.

Controversies[edit]

It was reported internationally when the representatives of the Miss England pageant committee asked her to "fatten up" in order to get a more "womanly figure" and help prevent anorexia among young women. She was also featured on the American television network NBC's Today show for this issue.[4]
