HERE come the girls!
A bevy of beauties lit up Low Fell as the finalists of this year's Miss North East GB contest were revealed.
With a week to go until a glitzy pageant at Wynyard Hall, those vying to be crowned Miss Newcastle GB, Miss Sunderland GB, Miss Durham GB and Miss Teesside GB visited the Rosa Twelve restaurant.
And they will hope that posing for The Chronicle's photographer isn't their last experience in front of the camera - with a modelling contract and a chance to compete in the Miss Great Britain final up for grabs.
The grand finale is being organised by Headline Models and One Voice Productions, together with Capital FM, with the charity Global's Make Some Noise set to benefit.
"Global's Make Some Noise is delighted to be the chosen charity for Miss North East," said fundraising manager Aimee Hayhurst. "Their support will enable us to continue our work supporting disadvantaged children and young people, who may be suffering from illness, disability, bereavement or simply lack of opportunity.
"We look forward to working closely with the 60 contestants, and with their support we will make some noise for those who struggle to be heard."
Giles Tanner, managing editor of Capital and Heart North East, said: "We are really exciting to be partnering Miss North East GB. It's a fantastic opportunity for real women across Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham and Teesside to become the face of our region and at the same time raise money for a fantastic cause, Global's Make Some Noise, to help change young lives."
Each winner will receive a selection of prizes, a modelling contract and will go on to represent their region in the Miss Great Britain Grand Final in September.
