Newhaven's Danielle Murray, AKA Misty Monroe, is in the running for this year's Miss Pinup UK contest, with the finals held at this year's London Tattoo Convention. Danielle has been a Seaford and Newhaven resident her whole life, even presenting on Seahaven FM, and her unique tastes have resulted in a passion for 50s fashion and music, leading to her Misty alter ego. Among her previous photo shoots, Misty has posed on Seaford seafront with a Triumph motorcycle and her qualifying profile photo for the contest was part of a shoot at the beautifully coloured beach huts near the Martello Tower.

Miss Pinup UK, and Miss International Pinup UK, is run by Rio Wild of All About Pinup and this year is sponsored by the likes of Pinup Popup Parlour, Pink Kitten dance school and The Pinup Academy, who's founder October Divine is one of the guest judges. The winner of the contest will be crowned Miss Pinup UK with a winner's sash and baseball jacket; as well as winning a photoshoot, a page in the Lady Jane Vintage Calendar 2016 and a dress from Little Miss Retro UK alongside a whole host of other fabulous prizes.

Due to the five quarter finals spread across the country, with one taking place in Brighton on July 25th, this years theme is 'the Travelling Circus', and Misty hopes to at least get through to the quarters. "Winning the competition would be a dream but just getting through to the quarter finals in my first ever contest would be an honour and a great help for everything I hope to achieve in the future. I am so grateful for the support I have received so far and the votes people have already put in!"

There are two ways to help get Misty into the quarter finals; head to and click 'vote' under her photo, you can do this as many times as you wish! To add an extra vote, go to the Miss Pinup UK Facebook page and 'like' Misty's photo! The combined votes from both places will determine who goes through to the regional quarter finals.
