Jack Eyers makes history as first amputee to make it to finals of Mr England 


Jack Eyers had his right leg amputated at the age of 16 and will compete against 24 other hopefuls at Mr England in July.

The 28-year-old is already an established model and was the first disabled person to take to the catwalk at New York Fashion week in 2015.

He said: “It’s such a huge platform from which to act as a role model in the media and promote diversity in modelling.”

Despite being unable to walk for four months after his surgery, he was working out in the gym within six months.

Jack discovered Models of Diversity, a company that campaigns for more diversity within the modelling industry, which helped him establish his career.

He has since appeared in campaigns for online fashion retailers, and was crowned Men’s Health Magazine’s Man of the Year.

Jack was the first amputee to participate in Fashion Weeks in New York, Milan and Moscow, and has performed in front of 80,000 people and the royal family at the 2012 Paralympic opening ceremony.

Jack made the final of the prestigious Mr England contest after going through an interview stage and coming second in a social media vote.

The final of Mr England will take place at Resorts World Birmingham on July 14, and the winner will represent his country at Mr World.
