Jamaican minister asked to judge Miss World


JAMAICA'S MINISTER of Youth and Culture Lisa Hanna has been approached by the Miss World Organisation to be a judge at the 2015 staging of the prestigious pageant.

Hanna won the crown in 1993.

Miss World 2015, featuring beauties from around the globe, is set to get under way in 10 days in Sanya, Hainan Island, China.

Dr Sanneta Myrie will be representing Jamaica in the competition.

Hanna declined to release details on the matter, only confirming that she has been approached to be one of the judges.

Last year, the former beauty queen was caught in a social media furore after she was pictured on the beach in a bikini.
