I never, ever wanted to lose my Miss Great Bri­tain ti­tle

Look (UK) - - WHAT’S NEW -

– in their view – a good role model. But at the time of Look go­ing to press, over 20,000 peo­ple who’ve signed a pe­ti­tion to have her re­in­stated in her role dis­agreed.

Even Zara, who says she’s now go­ing to take some time out from dat­ing, thinks that Miss GB could be send­ing out the wrong mes­sage by tak­ing her crown away. ‘Be­fore I had my ti­tle stripped I would 100 per cent back beauty pageants. They’ve made me be­lieve in my­self. But I think strip­ping my ti­tle might give out the wrong mes­sage now,’ she says. ‘I think peo­ple want to see a real role model that they can re­late to.’ Ac­ci­den­tal fem­i­nist? Per­haps; per­haps not. Ei­ther way Zara’s shone the spot­light on pageant politics. We reckon you’re bet­ter off with­out that sash, Zara!
