“As a ‘Miss’ competition, this event will have rounds including evening gown, national costume and swimwear, although I’ve already done the latter.”

The competition will take place over 10 days.

Miss Cartier first entered competitions at the age of 17 and has since participated in pageants all around the UK, including Miss England.

She added: “I first started off doing a bit of modelling and was then attracted to pageants.

"They looked like great fun. They’re similar to modelling but have a greater social aspect which I really enjoy.

“I haven’t stopped since entering my first competition at the age of 17 and now I’m really happy about competing in my second international competition this year."
