SCORES of young women flocked to a Wigan shopping centre last weekend to make sure they were in with a chance of being this year’s Miss Wigan.

On Saturday the search got under way at The Grand Arcade in the town centre to find the 2012 Miss Wigan as well as the all new Junior Miss Wigan.

Top modelling scouts came to the town to ensure they had the best people on the ground to find the borough’s most glamourous women.

And last year’s winner, Abbie Green, was also there to help with the search.

Winning the prestigious title gives the opportunity to girls from any background, with little or no modelling experience, to get involved in the highly-regarded competition.

The winner of Miss Wigan 2012 will win a place in the Miss England competition, where she will have a chance to go on to Miss World, where the main prize is $100,000.
