We start with the heats in Wolverhampton, where three entrants in the Miss Black Country heat go through the rigorous rounds – interviews, bootcamp and catwalk – to see if they have what it takes to win the crown.
It's an expensive business with all the hair extensions, fake tans, nails and clothes needed, and with unemployment among women at its highest in the Black Country, the girls need all they can get to enter the contest.
There's 18-year-old Diamond, who was kicked out of school for being naughty and worries that she'll never find a job. Sammy Jo has been unemployed for two years and lives in a hostel with other jobless teens, and finally 19-year-old Natalie has been refused work in all sorts of places, so has started her own mobile hair extension business in order to buy the perfect pageant dress.
