Miss Great Britain Danielle Lloyd has been stripped of her title, over her relationship with one of the competition's judges.
The 22-year-old beauty queen began dating soccer star TEDDY SHERINGHAM after they met at the event in February (06).
But organisers stepped in after Lloyd gave an interview in which she mentioned a Christmas present Sheringham bought for her - implying they were dating before the contest.
The pair have denied the allegations, insisting Lloyd was misquoted, but organisers were also angered by a Playboy spread Lloyd has posed for.
In a statement on Thursday (2NOV06), Miss Great Britain organisers said, "Following recent claims in the press and magazines and the publicity given on the playboy website for their next issue, we have sadly decided to strip Danielle Lloyd of her title as Miss Great Britain 2006 effective immediately. We are very sad that this action has been necessary and we wish her the best for the future."
