The Miss Guernsey beauty pageant, held to elect an ambassador for the island, will return after it was not held in 2009.

The events did not take place due to confusion over who had the rights to the event.

These have now been resolved and the event will now take place on 22 October.

The launch of Miss Guernsey 2010, including details of the application process, will be announced next month.

Natalie Thoumine, the current Miss Guernsey after being crowned in September 2008, said: "It's been a real honour and privilege to be Miss Guernsey for the past two years.

"I never imagined I would get to keep the crown for so long, and I am pleased the organisers have come up with these new plans. I look forward to being there on the night for the crowning of the next Miss Guernsey."

The event is due to be held at the Carlton Plaza.

Sue Markham, from organisers GBG Media, said: "[We have] plans for a complete revamp of the Miss Guernsey event.

"The ceremony will be a black tie affair with a real focus on finding the person who really represents the spirit and beauty of Guernsey."
