Jamaica's Toni-Ann Singh is set to become the longest-reigning Miss World titleholder in history.

Toni-Ann took the 69th Miss World crown in London, England on 14 December. She is the fourth Jamaican to win Miss World.

The Miss World Organisation announced on Wednesday that it would be postponing the 70th edition of the pageant until 2021. Miss World 2019 Toni-Ann will have to hold onto her crown a little bit longer, until she is able to crown her successor. 

A host country and venue is yet to be confirmed.

"We have made the decision to delay the 70th Miss World Final. Safety is paramount as we continue the fight against Covid 19," said Julia Morley Chairman and CEO of Miss World.

The coronavirus pandemic has halted international and local pageants cross the world, including Miss South Africa 2020, which has been moved to October 2020.
