After 48 hours in Manchester, the contestants of Mr World 2016 were all ready to move on to Southport, the final destination and host resort of Mr World 2016.

Stepping off the coach at this quaint seaside resort, the contestants were met by members of the Tourism Board who officially welcomed each one of them before the Town Crier heralded their arrival and the initiation of the competition.

After a few days of getting to know one another, it’s nearly time to step it up, with auditions and rehearsals taking place all day tomorrow, before the physical Challenge Events begin the following day!

Check out the individual photos taken at yesterday’s arrival in Southport:
