SACKED Miss Oxfordshire contestant, Georgia Eden, said she has received a personal message of support from comedian David Walliams.

Miss Eden, 22, from Abingdon, was kicked out of the contest for tweeting an “implied topless” photo of herself for breast cancer awareness campaign #coppafeel.

Since her story was revealed in the Oxford Mail it has been picked up by the New York Daily News, International Business Times and Fashion Times.

Miss Eden said she was also asked to appear on TV show Loose Women, but claimed the booking was postponed because Miss England – organisers of the Miss Oxfordshire competition – refused to comment.

Miss Eden, a professional model for London agency Mode, said: “The amount of support has been overwhelming, from people all over the world. I even had David Walliams follow me on Twitter, and he sent me a private message saying he read the article and I had his support 100 per cent.

“There have been a few negative comments, but that is to be expected.”

The Dart Road resident said she had turned down one national newspaper’s offer to do a topless photoshoot.

She said: “If I had done that everyone would have said ‘all she did it for was the publicity’, and that’s not the career I want.”

Neither Miss England or Coppafeel have commented.

So the organisers of the 'competition' have single handedly done more to damage the reputation of the already outdated competition by banning her than the young lady would have ever done had they kept their pompous mouths shut. If they hadn't banned her nobody would have known a thing about it other than her close friends, serves them right but as she was banned for bringing the competition into disrepute they should now be sacked for the same offence.

Why are you still devoting column inches to this? It's old news, move on. I'm sure Georgia Eden is loving all this free publicity for her fledgling career, but seriously? Why give so much attention to an out-dated, flawed competition that no one really cares about any more.

It's all good publicity, what's the problem? Good excuse for the OM to publish the photograph as serious journalism.
