MANILA – Actress and television host Megan Young is set to return to the Philippines next week after winning the much-coveted crown of the Miss World beauty pageant in Indonesia.

"Pauwi na siya. Darating siya Thursday," said Cory Quirino, Director of the Miss World Philippines.

Quirino, who was at the Grand Kapamilya Weekend to celebrate ABS-CBN's 60 years celebration in Philippine television, said that Young's motorcade is also scheduled for next week in Makati City.

"Iniimbitahan ko ang lahat ng ating kapamilya mag meet-and-greet kay Megan. Mayroon siyang motorcade Friday afternoon 2 p.m. sa Ayala Avenue," announced Quirino.

Quirino said she would rather ignore the online bashers of the newly-crowned Miss World.

"Patawarin na lang natin silang lahat," she said.

The 23-year-old Kapamilya star's victory marks the first time the Philippines clinched the crown.

Quirino said Young is currently in London, her official residence during her one year reign. -- Report from DZMM
