Nine finalists for Flower Queen have been selected and the winners will be chosen by a panel of judges at an election night in March.
The Flower Queen and Deputy will be presented with crowns and sashes by the outgoing holders of the posts, Holly Kendrick and Star Perry.
The pageant’s organisers have acknowledged that not everyone will be happy with the inclusion of a man among the finalists, but organisers say the competition has to be “inclusive”
