London: A 23-year-old Indian-origin doctor has been crowned Miss England after fending off competition from dozens of other models, IANS reported on Friday.

Bhasha Mukherjee, 23, from Derby, holds two different medical degrees, has an IQ of 146, making her officially a 'genius'. She is fluent in five languages, reported The Daily Mail.

Before the contest, Mukherjee said, “Some people might think pageant girls are airheads, but we all stand for a cause.”

"My pageant career all started to happen while I was in the middle of studying at medical school - it took a lot of convincing for me to do it, but eventually I decided to do it to balance out my studying and give me a break,” she added.

Mukherjee was born in India. Her family relocated to the UK when she was nine.

She went onto complete two bachelor degrees: one in medical sciences and one in medicine and surgery from the University of Nottingham.

As winner of Miss England, she will be entered into the Miss World contest and will also bag a holiday to Mauritius.
