New Miss Great Britain backs decision to de-crown Love Island star Zara Holland

Deone Robertson claims she "saw it coming"

Zara after news of Miss GB

The new Miss Great Britain has defended the pageant organisers' decision to strip Zara Holland of the title after her raunchy antics on Love Island 2016.

Deone Robertson, who came second in last year's Miss GB contest, has taken over from Zara after it was announced last week that she had been 'de-crowned'.

Unsurprisingly, Deone has now told the Mirror that she agrees with the move - and even claimed she "saw it coming".

"We are supposed to be role models for young girls and represent our chosen charities," said the Miss North Lanarkshire winner. "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."

However, Deone wished Zara well, having apparently become pals with her during the competition.

"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," the 28-year-old said.

"She has worked so hard to get where she is, losing her title is just the end of one small chapter in her life. She is going to go on and achieve so much more."

Deone added that while she loves watching shows like Love Island, "I don't think I could actually be on one".

While Zara chose to stay on Love Island despite being de-crowned, she later left the ITV2 show after learning of an illness in her family.

Deone will now spend three months as Miss Great Britain until her successor is crowned in its 2016 pageant in September.
