If you’re not familiar with this story then click here to read all about the shambles that was the Miss Black Britain beauty pageant, and please take time to read the comments left by contestants, sponsors and members of the public.
American actress Nia Long was also present at the event (she was supposed to be hosting it) but walked out in disgust an hour later.
A reader has now kindly forwarded on the email that he received from the organisers, which attempts to explain Saturday’s shenanigans.
Saturday evening was a very stressful evening for all members of the Miss BB Team.
Having no access to the venue for everyone due to the Lords mayors show impacted the entire event. The artist were unable to get in to complete their sound checks on schedule this applies to the dancers, the sound engineers, the makeup , hair team, support staff, the live band , the hosts for rehearsals in the day the list goes on etc , CARS WERE UNABLE TO ACCESS THE BUILDING . With this in mind food and drinks for you guys could not be delivered and other crucial things that we needed to be delivered. We could not have changed this and had to deal with this the best possible way we could. This had huge implications on our months of endless planning and efforts.
Due to the ‘playing catch up’ we did not get to give you girls the rehearsal time that we would usually allocated.
All have you have attended the heats and the castings for Miss Black Britain and there is no doubt that our standards are a fully professional, these were very unfortunate circumstances for us.
We apologies for the lack of preparation time but this was out of our hands due to issues explained above.
We wish you all the best of luck for the future.
Thank you participating in the competition
Miss BB Team
