Although Zara was far from the first person to have an intimate moment on the ITV2 reality show, hers was particularly noteworthy, as the Miss Great Britain organisation chose to strip her of her title due to the incident.
While many have called out the pageant for a double-standard towards women, and a petition has already gained 10,000 signatures for her to be reinstated, Zara has remained quiet on the matter, until now.
Miss GB runner-up Deone Robertson has since been announced as Zara’s replacement, and she recently claimed she supported the organisation’s decision.
“Zara has been in the pageant industry a long time. She would have known all of this. She knew the difficult situation she would have been putting the organisers in… nobody is saying she did anything wrong. She is a young girl enjoying life but under these circumstances, she can’t be a title-holder.”
