Jemma is currently studying interior design at the Open University and also runs her own interior design and painting and decorating company in the county.

Miss England is not just about beauty and Jemma is hoping her sporting prowess will give her an advantage.

She said: “It’s about you as an all-round person so we have an eco-round, a sports round and we do a military style bootcamp.

“I am trained in taekwondo and working towards my black belt this year.”

Another element of the competition is charity work, and as well as supporting Bucks-based charity the Florence Nightingale Hospice and national charity Macintyre, she has also visited an orphanage in Africa.

The Miss England final takes place on July 14 and will be decided by a panel of judges, although a public vote, which opened this week, will act as one judge.
