Miss Wales 2023 is Millie-Mae Adams from Cardiff

Millie-Mae Adams from Cardiff edged out 28 other finalists to win Miss Wales 2023 on Saturday, April 15 at The Riverfront in Newport.

The 20-year-old first-year medical student at the University of Exeter succeeded last year's winner Darcey Corria and will represent Wales at Miss World 2024.

Zoe Scrimshaw (25) from Chepstow, Monmouthshire, and Helena Hawke (18) from Caerleon were named the first and second runners-up, respectively.

The new Miss Wales is an alopecia advocate who has suffered from the hair loss condition herself for two years. She also founded the non-profit Street Doctors Exeter whose latest campaign "8 Minutes to Save a Life" provides young people training on how to act as first responders if they come across a victim of a knife attack.

Millie-Mae is a Yale Young Global Scholar, and an ambassador for Calan DVS, one of the largest domestic abuse charities in Wales with a mission to end domestic violence and abuse.

"I don’t even know where to begin with all the thank yous that are due for the unwithering support. Miss Wales has given me opportunities I couldn’t have even dreamt of," she wrote on social media after winning her title and went on to thank her family and friends for their support.
