ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - It has been confirmed that Ms Tecora Morgan will not return to complete her participation in the Miss BVI Pageant which is currently taking place at the Multipurpose Sports Complex, this evening August 6, 2017.

Ms Morgan, who was rushed to the Peeble's hospital in connection with a pre-existing lung condition after only two segments were remaining, was expected to return to complete the pageant.

However, it was later announced that she would be unable to return and would therefore not be judged in the Evening Wear and Question and Answer segments which were left to be completed.

Her condition has been reported as stable up to press time.

    She wasted everyone's time being in this pageant let's be honest. She wasn't at any TV and Radio interviews nor the queens baton relay but was fine for the swimsuit competiton worth points and yet she still managed to be on Snapchat partying every night with her illness. Her not showing up to any of the supplementary events is not fair to her fellow contestants who also have work and prior commitments but were devoted to the show. Then she made everyone wait for her to come back and never returned. She should not have been allowed to come back if she left, im sorry. Even if she had an illness it is not fair to the other girls.
