MISS Ireland Jessica Hayes has had a chance to settle in and size up her competition in London.
The model was joined by her counterparts from Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales for a photo shoot as part of her Miss World trip.
Hayes (20), from Cork, had been making her name on the Dublin modelling scene before she was crowned Miss Ireland.
Now she is competing for the title of Miss World in the UK. She will take part in a number of events before the winner is crowned on Sunday December 14.
Rosanna Davison is currently the only Irish woman to have held the title.
