Winner: Miss Phillipines
Miss Philippines has been crowned Miss World in a glittering finale despite threats by Islamist groups to disrupt the competition. The final round was held amid tight security after ongoing protests by Muslim extremists - who had previously branded the iconic competition 'pornography' and a 'whore contest'.

She beat 127 contestants vying for the crown - all of whom took to the stage wearing a range of shimmering and sequined evening gowns. However, Four candidates had dropped out earlier, mainly due to illnesses, according to organisers.
