Eddison, who owns Dressed Boutique in Samlesbury, has been competing in beauty pageants since she was a young teen.

She has had success at beauty pageants all over the country, claiming the title of Miss Great Britain Teen and representing Great Britain internationally where she placed in the competition’s top 10.

The former Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School pupil said: “I am so excited for this new opportunity, I can't wait to bring a little pocket of Miss Great Britain to Lancashire.

“If you are aged 18 upwards then get involved! It will be the best decision you ever make. You don't want to miss out on this.”

Before the event each of the girls will invest their time and effort into supporting the event's nominated charity, as well as promoting sponsors, working in their communities and on their passions all alongside helping to build the brand of Miss Great Britain Lancashire.

Before the big reveal, the contestants will take part in a one-to-one judges interview and showcase their fashion wear and evening gowns.

This year, Miss Great Britain Lancashire has chosen to support Chorley-based charity Derian House Children's Hospice alongside charity Alex's Wish.
