An actor who appeared in Hollyoaks and Family Affairs has picked a village's new carnival queen.
Nour Fawaz, 15, was chosen as this year's Old Windsor Carnival Queen at the village's guide and scout May Fair at King's Court School on Saturday.
She is a volunteer with the brownies who hopes to become a lawyer.
She and her carnival attendant Lorna Cottrill, 16 were chosen by local celebrities Quentin and Lenka Jones. Quentin is an actor producer who has appeared in Family Affairs, Coming Home and Hollyoaks, while his wife Lenka is a top photographer. The couple were suitably impartial as they live in central Windsor - not in the village.
Lorna is a pupil at Windsor Girls School who likes amateur dramatics and hopes to work with animals.
This year's carnival princesses were chosen separately by a panel of impartial judges from outside the village. They are Eleanor Collins and Charley Barron. Eleanor, 10, attends St Peters School in Crimp Hill Road and likes riding, going to guides meetings and swimming
Charley, eight, attends Kings Court School and likes singing, dancing and being bit of a chatterbox
There are two carnival sprites. Zak Corsiem, nine, who attends Kings Court School, likes football, swimming, golf, cubs, cricket and his playstation
Leo Want, seven, also goes Kings Court School likes beavers, football, swimming and sticker collecting.
This year's carnival will take place a week later than usual over the weekend of July 15, 16 and 17.
