Love Island has paid tribute to departed Zara Holland by staging their very own Miss Love Island challenge.

But while she's gone, she's not been forgotten.

Zara was stripped of her Miss Great Britain title last week after she slept with Alex Bowen on the show. Organisers of the pageant said they could no longer promote her as a positive role model.

While Zara was devastated – and fans started a petition to reinstate her – her replacement and a former Miss Great Britain have spoken out to say they're not surprised she was dethroned.

Zara is now back in the UK.



Speaking to The Mirror, newly-crowed Deone Robertson said she feels sorry for Zara losing the Miss GB title, but feels it was inevitable after watching her antics on Love Island, especially as the responsibilities of the title are "drummed" into contestants.

"Everyone is briefed before entering a pageant. It's drummed into your head. There are contracts in place. You can't be seen naked or topless and you definitely cannot have sex on TV," said Deone.

FormerMiss Great Britain Gemma Garrett said something similar last night, telling Belfast Telegraph's Sunday Life: "It's very silly because she would have been given a contract and one of those clauses would have been to not have sex on TV."

Zara says her goodbyes.



A statement issued by Miss Great Britain Organisation on Friday said: "For those saying 'going into Love Island, it's inevitable that she would have sex,' that is not true. It is not a prerequisite of the show that you have sex. We gave our permission for Zara to enter, as our current winner, under the stipulation that she did not have sex on TV. Zara fully agreed to this and knowingly went against our wishes.

"Zara is a lovely girl, we understand that this is out of character for her and that she truly regrets her actions; however, the decision simply comes down to the fact that she has broken the rules of the competition."

Now back in the UK, Zara has told Daily Star that she vowed she wouldn't sleep with anyone on the show, but caught up in the moment after a few glasses of wine.

"I said to myself, I couldn't have sex with guys on the show. And I never do one-night stands. But I knew once I'd had three glasses of wine… I didn't even dare to think what would happen. I was in there three weeks and forgot I was being filmed."
