But today it emerged that Miss Cornwall has been stripped of her crown after organisers discovered she is five years older than she claimed to be - and lives in a different county.
Laura Anness, 27, lost her sash and title after she was found to have entered her age as 22 on the application form for the competition for every one of the last four years.
She has now lost the chance to compete for the title of Miss England and will be replaced by the woman who was awarded second prize.
Miss Anness also loses a 12-month modelling contract and £2,000 worth of prizes.
A pageant spokesman said:'The recently crowned Miss Cornwall 2010 Laura Anness has been stripped of her title.'Laura clearly stated on entry to the contest that she was 22.
