The prize package includes thousands of pounds worth of prizes including an all-expenses paid trip to Miss World in Indonesia, a Kia car from Downey’s, a wardrobe of designer dresses for Miss World and a cover shoot with IN! magazine.
Afterwards, the 23-year-old said: “I’m in a state of shock, I am just so happy and truly delighted to be taking over the crown and representing Northern Ireland.
“Being part of the competition has been amazing. I honestly never thought I’d get this far.
“I’m thrilled to say the least and I plan to enjoy every single minute of the next year.”
The gala final was a glamorous affair hosted by ex-Miss Northern Ireland and TV presenter Zoe Salmon, alongside news broadcaster Marc Mallett.
