Miss World 2019 Toni-Ann Singh on Saturday said she would like to visit the Philippines as she sang praises for her competitor, Michelle Dee, who finished in the top 12.

"Miss Philippines is phenomenal. The causes, the work she has been doing, is phenomenal and you should be very proud because I am. And I hope I get to visit (the Philippines)," she told ABS-CBN News.

Singh, 23, is the fourth Jamaican to win the coveted Miss World crown. 

“It’s surreal. I’m quite sure I’m dreaming but I going to wake up in the morning and it will all actually set in. But mostly I’m grateful. Grateful to make history for my country, grateful to be able to represent women all over the world and grateful for this platform to create some real change," she said.
