MEET your new Mr and Miss Gloucester.
Yaseen Jaffer and Lauren Phelps saw off hot competition from a host of other finalists to take their respective crowns at a contest at The Registry bar, in Bruton Way.
Yaseen, 19, a trainee electrician from Brookthorpe and Lauren, 18, from Podsmead, who works at Osprey at The Quays, said they were shocked but delighted to claim the top spot on Thursday.
When they were announced, cheers went up around the nightspot and Yaseen’s mum Sara Jaffer ran onto the stage to give him a big hug.
Clutching his trophy, Yaseen said: “I am gobsmacked.”
Smiling from ear to ear, his mum Sara added: “It is fantastic, I am really proud of him.
“He is such a lovely, lovely boy.”
Wearing her tiara with pride, Lauren said all the girls were great contestants, but added: “I am really happy.”
Yaseen will now go through to the final of Mr England and Lauren will go through to the semi-finals of Miss England.
Miss England herself, Charlotte Holmes, was there to present the winners with their sashes and trophies alongside fellow judge Gloucester legend, the Raging Bull Phil Vickery.
