MISS England contestants proved they were more than just a pretty face when they were put through their paces in Worcestershire at their first official military boot camp.

Evesham-based Xtreme Boot Camps put the girls to the test with a tough workout in preparation for the final of the Miss England competition in June.

The semi-finalists will also face another Xtreme challenge at the penultimate round of the competition on May 19 at Kelham Hall, Nottingham, where the last girl standing will win a place in the final.

James Evans, co-founder of Xtreme Boot Camps, the official boot camp of Miss England 2014, said: "We wanted to give the Miss England contestants the chance to show they are more than just pretty faces and test their mental determination as well as physical abilities.

"They made it through a full-on military level boot camp and the girls did really well to push past their limits."

The contestants, Chelsie Griffin, who won Miss Nuneaton, Holly Desai, Miss Leicestershire, Selina Singleton, Miss Rugby runner-up, Holly Steele, Miss popularity Cheltenham and Ruby Bowater, Miss Black Country runner-up, spent one hour running through lakes and woods at the Farncombe Estate as well as military circuits and commando crawls on the hills.

They will face the challenge again at the semi finals and for those who make it at the finals in Torquay on June 23.
