'Love Island' 2016: Zara Holland Breaks Silence Amid Miss Great Britain Furore

'I did nothing wrong.'

Former ‘Love Island’ contestant Zara Holland has spoken out following the controversy that has errupted since she had sex on the show.

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.
