Inverness's reigning Miss Scotland walked the runway in style at the finale of this year's 71st Miss World competition as she went up against over 100 women from across the globe.

Chelsie Allison (26) scooped the title of Miss Scotland in October.

The Tesco Mobile retail manager has spent the past five weeks in India as part of the Miss World competition.

While Chelsie didn't make the top 40 shortlist of the competition, she was 'filled with gratitude' to be a part of 'such an incredible experience'.

She said: "I am beyond grateful to have been given the opportunity to represent my beautiful country and have met all these amazing women from across the world.

"They will be sisters for life and I love them more than I can describe.

"Every single second of this journey has been incredible.

"It is an experience that I will truly never forget and cherish in my heart forever."

From competing in a multimedia challenge, to making it in the top 20 model shortlist, Miss Scotland has certainly done it all throughout her time in India.

When talking about her modelling achievement, she said: "I was completely shocked when they called my country for the top 20 in the top model challenge!

"I was placed in the top five in Europe which was incredible."

Chelsie has spent her time in India advocating for the 'save the tiger' campaign, which involved raising awareness by taking action in order to secure a future for tigers and preserve biodiversity of the planet.

Miss Scotland has also been tirelessly rehearsing for the Miss World final show for weeks.

The show took place in Mumbai and was broadcast live on YouTube and the Miss World website at 2pm today (Saturday).

In aid of the pageant, Chelsie took the liberty of supporting the Highland Hospice as her chosen charity after two of her relatives, who sadly passed away, were taken into the hospice where they received an exceptional standard of care.

She now plans to continue her work alongside the hospice and aims to raise as much money as possible for the cause.
