Klass to host Miss World contest

TV star Myleene Klass has gone to the other side of the world to find the next Miss World.

The presenter, who found fame on the talent show Popstars, will host the 62nd Miss World contest in Inner Mongolia on Saturday.

She said: "It is a real honour to have been invited to host such an iconic show as Miss World. I am very excited."

Among the favourites to win the show, which will be broadcast in 180 countries, are Miss Mexico and Miss China.

The show is co-hosted by American actor Jason Cook.

Klass, who was a member of chart-topping group Hear'Say, hit the headlines earlier this year when her marriage to Graham Quinn collapsed.
