Former Miss Bristol in the running to be crowned Miss England
A FORMER Miss Bristol, who achieved national fame after becoming glamour model Jordan's protege, is again in the running to become Miss England.
Amy Willerton, 19, who grew up in Westbury Park, was recently crowned Miss London.
It means she is now hot favourite to represent England at the Miss World Pageant.
The model recently won Miss Beauty and the Beach 2012, a qualifier in the pageant, and as her prize was flown to Thailand for a photo shoot with celebrity photographer Alan Strutt.

It also meant she was fast-tracked through to the final 15 in the Miss England final on Tuesday.
Ms Willerton gained national attention last year when she beat 10,000 girls to win Sky Living's Signed by Katie Price show.
But just a few months after being crowned the winner, the young model claimed in a tabloid interview that several of her prizes, including a modelling contract and use of a Range Rover, failed to materialise.
Price's Blacksheep Management later said Ms Willerton refused to work with them on an exclusive basis, as all contestants were told they would be required to do.
When Ms Willerton was accepted onto the TV show she was the reigning Miss Bath and was therefore in the running for Miss England last year.
But after filming began she had to relinquish her place in the contest.
The model and keen skier and surfer now wants to put that behind her and concentrate on Tuesday's final.
"For me this is kind of unfinished business," said Ms Willerton, who moved from Bristol to London in January.
"A few hundred girls entered the competition and I'm down to the final 15 so now I'm just hoping for a win."
