The Miss Great Britain beauty contest is changing itself to suit the modern times and has become the first national pageant to allow unmarried mothers and divorcees to participate.

To promote equal opportunity to women of all ages, the organisers have also banned bikinis, with a return to a one-piece swimsuit round. Among the entries this year, five single mothers have made it to the final. The move makes a change from the former rigid rules of the contest.
