A FORMER beauty queen has taken on a new role - as the president of a local agricultural show.

Georgia Horsley, originally from Malton, was crowned Miss England in 2007 and four years ago married rock star Danny Jones of the band McFly.

Now she has been named as this year's president of the Malton Show - and will be there with her family on July 1 to carry out her duties.

“I’m incredibly honoured to be asked to be lady president at this year's show," she said.

"I used to love going to the show when I was younger and have nothing but fond memories of attending the show with my family. I can't wait to make the journey back home and see what this year's show has in store."

Show committee chairman Charlie Breese said: “We're delighted Georgia has agreed to be our president this year.

"She will be the youngest and most glamorous president in the history of the show. We're so pleased to have her support."
