The finale of Miss England 2022 was held on Monday, 17th October 2022 at the Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport where Miss Lancashire 2022 Jessica Ashley Gagen was crowned the new queen. The stunning beauty has created history by being the first redhead to win the Miss England 2022 crown.

Jessica Ashley Gagen hails from Skelmersdale and bested 30 other finalists to be crowned the new queen. Jessica is 26 years of age and a model and an aerospace engineering student at the University of Liverpool. The stunning beauty also bagged the Dentakay Brightest Smile Award. She is not new to the pageantry as she competed at Miss England 2021 where she placed as the first runner-up.



The newly crowned Miss England 2022 Jessica Ashley Gagen’s court included –

1st Runner-up – Emily Cossey from Chelsea

2nd Runner-up – Milly Everatt from Lincolnshire

Jessica advocates for STEM education as she quotes, “As I’m sure you’re aware, I’m super passionate about diminishing stereotypes by showcasing both sides of my life, the modelling AND the engineering - to prove to our young girls that they can indeed still flourish in typically male dominated environments.”



Jessica talked about education and women's empowerment as wants to inspire young girls, especially those who are being bullied for being red-haired to pave their own way in the industry. Jessica herself is a future aerospace engineer and pilot in a heavily male-dominated industry which makes her an even stronger woman.

Congratulations to the newly crowned queen.
