WATCH: 61-Year-Old Crowned Malta’s Grandma Of The Year During Beauty Pageant

She beat off competition from eight grandmothers to win the grand prize!

Patricia Darmanin, a 61-year-old from Kalkara, has been crowned Malta’s grandma of the year.

Patricia, a mother of four and grandmother of two, won the rather unorthodox competition last night, beating off Joyce Zammit, 70, from San Ġwann, and Michelle Agius, 51, from Floriana.

She blew a kiss to the crowd as the crown was placed on her head and the sash tied around her, before walking down the red carpet to the cheers of the audience.

The annual pageant, which pitted nine grandmothers against each other, is organised by Ivan Gaffiero, who also runs the agent behind the Mrs Malta and Malta’s Next Top Model beauty shows.
