Devizes School hosted a beauty pageant with a twist – male sixth formers dressed as women from around the world.

Organised by the sixth form committee and held in the school hall, students and staff were charged £1 to watch.

It was done in X Factor style in front of four judges, including teaching staff and a senior student, and the contestants had to perform a task to show off their talent which included hula hooping, banana eating at speed and playing the recorder.

A donation from the proceeds will go to BBC Children in Need.

The winner was Billy Holdsworth as Miss Hawaii and runner-up was Greg Bowen as Miss South Africa.

Other entrants were Dominic Blackmore Beales as Miss Greece, Laurence Day as Miss Romania, Alex Singh as Miss India and John Bramwell as Miss Amazon Tiki Warrior.

The compere was Tom Mullings.
