Miss World Bangladesh Jessia Islam on Saturday will join the grand finale of the 67th edition of the Miss World 2017 which is taking place at the Sanya City Arena in Sanya, China.

Miss World Bangladesh Jessia Islam has been selected in the top 40 list of Miss World 2017 beauty pageant.

Jessia Islam, who was crowned Miss World Bangladesh after Jannatul Nayeem Avril was stripped off her title on fraud charges, is representing Bangladesh in the Miss World competition in China.

Jessia is representing Bangladesh in the pageant after a 16-year break while Tabassum Ferdous Shaon, who participated in the Miss World 2001 in South Africa, was the last Bangladeshi contestant.
