Rachel Christie loses her crown!!!

OMG! Rachel Christie is no longer Miss England in what seems to be one of the most bizarre curse of the ex girlfriend stories I have ever heard!

Rachel Christie

ALLEGEDLY Rachel (niece of Linford Christie) was at Mansion club in Manchester with her current love interest Tornado aka David McIntosh (from Gladiator on Sky 1)

Sara Beverley Jones

and also in the club the current Miss Manchester, Sara Beverley Jones, who just happens be Tornado ex- girlfriend. (Ok so not a good start!) It is ALLEGED that Rachel and Sara argued over Tornado. It is then ALLEGED that Rachel then switched and hit Sara in her face (!!!WTF!!!), Rachel was arrested for assault and is currently released on bail. *blank stare*

Rachel Christie

Rachel Christie was the first ever black Miss England and she was due to represent England at Miss World in Johannesburg next month. A statement from Miss England organisation said “Due to the media attention following the allegations against her, Rachel Christie has now decided to withdraw from the Miss World competition and relinquish her Miss England crown…Rachel will concentrate on clearing her name and focus on training for the 2012 Olympics until this case is resolved.”

Did she give up the title willingly or was she forced to? The truth will come out….it just a matter of time but for now what do you think???

Tinchy StryderTinchy aka Stryder Man looked like he was enjoying his fame – well he has already got two number ones under his belt!  His album Catch 22 is dropping 17.08.09.

Rachel Christie being I D'edPoor Rachel ‘Miss England’ Christie had trouble getting in as security was extra tight at the door. Although she did not cause a fuss as one particular doorman who could easily be accused of having an attack of ‘I have a position of power and I am going make a point of it’ when he hounded her for ID “I’m just doing my job” he said. But really he needs to get a clue and fast as when Rachel won Miss London earlier this year the competition was actually held at Movida!!! Come on!

Speaking exclusively to FLYER Rachel said ‘I just can’t believe it’

Sade Says brings you a snippet from Rachel’s interview just after she won!

FLYER: How did you get into modelling?

Rachel: I was approached when I was thirteen when doing Rollerblading in Notting hill Skate park and appeared on the cover of a magazine but I never really took modelling that seriously. I hope to become an Olympic 400 metre runner.

FLYER: Your uncle Linford Christie is famous did he inspire you?

Rachel: Linford has encouraged me but mainly on my technique for sprinting. The main inspiration for this is from my athletics coach, John Smith who trains the girls at Thames Valley athletic club.

FLYER: Who was supporting you tonight?

Rachel: My mother was here today to support me but in all the excitement she split her dress and has gone home to fix it. I hope my achievements will encourage more from minority backgrounds to follow their dreams. I am very proud of to have been born in the UK and to represent the UK.

Caprice and Miss England

Glad to hear Rachel was unofficially the bookies favourite as her win took the audience by surprise.

Sade Says its all about taking part but winning does feel great!!!!
