The Miss Bedfordshire 2009 final will be an exciting and entertaining event where beautiful and ambitious girls can be seen promoting themselves with the added thrill of competition.

Miss World is now the second most watched TV programme in the world, with 2.6 billion people tuning in over 140 countries.
