Unless you somehow lost access to the internet over the last few days you'll know that it's all kicking off at the moment over ITV2 show Love Island.

One story that has really shocked a lot of people concerns Zara Holland, a (now former) Miss GB winner who's been stripped of her title for having sex on TV with fellow contestant Alex Bowen.

Having already left the show due to an illness in her family, Zara has now shared to The Sun that she's pretty outraged over Miss GB's decision to strip her of her title:  "I haven't committed a crime, so why should I have my title taken from me? It's horrific. I've done nothing wrong. All women have needs."

Explaining that there's nothing criminal in a woman deciding to have sex, she continued: "I'm a 20-year-old girl who was in the moment. There are lots of girls my age who go out every week and do that — mine was just on national TV. I haven't committed a crime, so why should I have my title taken from me? It's horrific."

"All the things Miss GB claims to stand for have been used against me. I sacrificed my work, my own personal savings, I worked my ass off.'

Adding that the only regret she has is in disappointing her family, Zara said: "I feel I let everybody down," she said. "My mum seeing it on TV was the worst thing to ever happen. I was mortified, horrified. But it has happened now and I can only move forward."

A bunch of people have come out in support of Zara - including host Caroline Flack, but one person who supports the organisation's decision to axe her title is the newly-crowned Miss GB, Deone Robertson, who says she 'saw it coming'. 

Yikes.
