Beauty queen loses crown over 'nude Facebook pics'

A beauty pageant winner in Britain has been stripped off her title over her alleged nude photos on Facebook.

Charlotte Campbell, who became the first single mother to win the Miss York City title, lost her crown after allegedly breaking competition rules that do not allow contestants to pose in the nude.

A statement on the Miss Great Britain website said the pageant had a policy of zero tolerance towards the publication of topless and nude images, and "had no choice" but to revoke Campbell's title.

"We do not allow completely nude photos of our title holders to be published," competition CEO Wendy Seinturier added.

Seinturier alleged she had more explicit pictures of Campbell, 23, but declined to make them available citing ethical and legal reasons.

Campbell has since been replaced by the Miss York City first runner-up, the Daily Mail reports.

However she has denied the allegations claiming there had never been any fully nude photograph either on Facebook or elsewhere online.

She said the alleged pictures had been posted on her Facebook page for over two years under no privacy settings, and were open to competition organisers before her win.

"I'm a genuine girl with good morals," The Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
