GMB's Ranvir Left Fuming Over Beauty Pageants 'Shocking' Rules

Good Morning Britain's Ranvir Singh was left visibly shocked over a debate on beauty pageants.

On today's episode of the ITV show, the presenter and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant was discussing reports that three former Miss France candidates had taken legal action against the organisers and Endemol Production, the company who makes the show.

The candidates stated that the organisers and Endemol Production are breaking French labour law, by discriminating against contestants, who they say are not allowed to gain weight, change their hair or have a husband or children.

Co-host Richard Madeley announced: "Three rejected Miss France contestants are suing the beauty contest that rejected them for alleged discrimination based on the way they look."

Ranvir continued: "Just think about that for a moment."

Meanwhile, the presenter added: "Part of the entry requirements say competitors are not allowed..." before pausing.

"I can't actually read it out, it's actually upsetting me," she added.

The host continued: "It says competitors are not allowed to gain weight, you must be taller than 5'5, you cannot have been married or have children. I'm going to explode!"

"It's like being a nun, isn't it?" Richard added.

Ranvir then added: "Is the traditional beauty pageant now out of date? It's a very short debate, the answer is yes."

Viewers of the show took to Twitter to debate pageant rules after seeing the segment.

One social media user wrote: "Abolish beauty pageants and Miss World all together, why do we need them and what purpose do they serve? Who actually sets out the rules for the women?"

While others were less sympathetic.

"If they want to do it let them. If women find it offensive or degrading they won't do it . Everyone has a choice in life," wrote one.

Good Morning Britain airs on ITV on weekday mornings.
