Love Island's Zara Holland has hit back at reports which claimed she was escorted from ITV by security after her appearance on Loose Women.

On Thursday, Zara received a grilling from the Loose Women panel about why she had sex on TV and the subsequent removal of her Miss Great Britain title.

During the show, Zara also came face-to-face with her replacement, Deone Robertson, and the pair shared a heated exchange.

And if that wasn't enough, Love Island's Alex Bowen - who Zara had sex with on the show - and his girlfriend Olivia Buckland have since spoken publicly about her appearance.

Taking to Twitter, Zara has now denied claims that she was "aggressive" and "escorted from the premises" by security.

She blasted: "I was not aggressive or escorted off the premises of ITV. Never such lies in my life! Ask anyone at ITV! Anyway, moving onwards, thank you for all your amazing comments and support."

A Loose Women told Reveal: "Zara was not removed or asked to leave the Loose Women studios today. She left of her own accord following her appearance on the show and with her mum."

Zara, 20, was stripped of her Miss Great Britain crown in July after her on-screen antics with fellow islander Alex.

Recalling that moment today, Zara told the Loose Women panel: "It was the most devastating moment of my life. It was terrible and I couldn't believe it. I worked so hard to be Miss Great Britain and it meant the absolute world to me. To have something stripped away from you that meant the world…"

Zara was then grilled by the panellists and, defending her actions, hit back: "I won Miss Great Britain in September and in the villa, on a reality show, you have no contact with the outside world and it's very hard. You don't see the cameras, there's no cameraman there. I was in the hideaway, it's very private, it wasn't in front of everybody. It was in the moment and it happened."
