Miss World loves Gibraltar

NEW Miss World Kaiane Aldorino, 23, has told the Olive Press how she loves coming home to Gibraltar.

The hospital administrator, who won the title in December, said: “I love coming back to live a normal life again.”

The down-to-earth girl continued: “It is totally unique, a really special place.

“There is nothing like the amazing views from the top, to Africa and into Spain.

“I also love the beaches, the lighthouse and the people are so friendly.”

Aldorino beat favourite Miss Puerto Rico after triumphing in the swimsuit competition.

The bilingual beauty is about to set off on another trip to Korea, having just got back from Japan and Brunei.

She is still amazed at the 15,000 people who turned up to her victory parade. “There were more people than even National Day,” she said.

Aldorino, whose boyfriend works on a cruise ship, was described by Chief Minister Peter Caruana as a “very special lady, who has put Gibraltar on the map!”

Denis MacShane MP, the former Europe Minister, described her win as “a victory for a Spanish-speaking European woman who live on the Mediterranean under the British flag,”.

He added: “I just hope she doesn’t meet Tiger Woods.”
