- Sally-Ann FawcettAdvisorSally-Ann FawcettAdvisor
Sally-Ann Fawcett joins the Miss Supranational UK team with several decades of experience in all aspects of pageantry.
Growing up in the pageant heyday of the 70s gave her a lifelong love affair with beauty queens and beauty pageants, and she still remembers watching her first ever contest, Miss United Kingdom 1974, at a very young age. She was hooked from that moment on. In the late 80s she competed in many pageants herself, including heats of the Miss United Kingdom contest. This gave her greater insight into the behind the scenes world of beauty pageants, having followed them from afar for so long.
In 2014, the first of a series of three books written by Sally-Ann was published. "Misdemeanours: Beauty Queen Scandals" took the pageant world by storm, the first book to ever lift the lid on the real stories of the most controversial and headline-grabbing beauty queens in history. The book was featured over a two-page double spread in The Sun newspaper, and was quoted in the Daily Mail, leading to several interviews on BBC radio.
Sally-Ann's second book, "More Misdemeanours", followed, and last year the third of the trilogy, "Mis-3-meanours: Second Runner-Up", both of which explored the history of pageants in greater depth.
She is currently working on a 75th anniversary history book of the Miss Great Britain pageant. Sally-Ann has been fortunate enough to judge many national pageants, including Miss World Wales, Miss World Northern Ireland, Miss Scuba United Kingdom, Miss International UK and the Galaxy Pageants, and has been Head Judge at Miss Great Britain for five years' running.
She is thrilled to join the Miss Supranational UK team and to being part of this pageant's new and exciting journey.
