THIRTEEN contestants battled it out this weekend for the title of Miss Transgender UK 2016 ­ and the chance to win life­ changing surgery.

The pageant, now in its second year, was held at a glitzy ceremony at the Marriott hotel in Leeds on August 6, with participants competing in two main categories: Miss Transsexual UK and Miss T­Girl UK.

The contest was split into three rounds ­ the casual walk and questions round, the talent section and the evening wear walk ­ and competitors were asked about their journey as a transgender person and the reactions to their transition.
