Many of us attempt online dating, blind dates or even consider going on a television show to find love.

Miss Great Britain Zara Holland was doing just that, appearing on ITV2 show Love Island to find a potential partner.

Following the revelation that Zara was engaged in sexual activities on the show, Miss Great Britain announced on Twitter that the model would be stripped of her title.

The organisation explains that it can no longer stand behind Zara as the ambassador for the competition following her actions and announces that the title of Miss Great Britain will now be handed to runner-up Deone Robertson.

Twitter users were quick to point out the old-fashioned stance the organisation has taken regarding the situation.
