Miss Isle of Man is back!

Gala for finalists tonight

After an 18 year absence, the moment is almost here.

Miss Isle of Man returns tonight with a gala ceremony at the Villa Marina.

Twelve finalists are bidding for the crown as the event is revived for the first time since 1999.

One of the organisers Susan Tummon says the funds raised for 12 Island charities – just under £149,000 - have been 'simply staggering'.
