Miss World draws a world wide telelvision audience of around one billion.

Mills said that her month spent touring China with the other 114 contestants made a big impact on her life.

Botswana’s Emma Wareus was second, and Venezuela’s Adriana Vasini was third.

The Miss World Pageant got off to a colourful start with a performance from dancers and drummers who mainly live on Hainan Island, which was hosting the event for its 5th time in eight years.
