Beauty contest judge canned for slamming 'munter' contestants

Millwall gals 'more Kate Moose than Kate Moss'

A beauty contest judge tasked with finding the sexiest fan of Millwall FC was given his marching orders after suggesting a large percentage of the contestants were tattoed "munters", the Daily Mail reports.

London-based technician Joe Amphlett made the unfortunate remarks during an interview on Talksport radio. Specifically, he slandered: "A lot of them have tattoos and I'm not keen on that. They turn me off. At the moment there's a lot of munters on there. I don't know why they think they have a chance of winning."

The pageant organisers quickly booted Amphlett from his judge's chair, and he grovelled yesterday: "I can't believe I've been given the elbow. I was only saying it as I saw it. Some of the girls are more Kate Moose than Kate Moss. But some are gorgeous - and have a very good chance of winning. I'm begging they give me another chance."

Readers can judge for themselves just how muntersome Millwall's fanettes are from the seductive selection of snaps down at the Mail. ®

For our extra-Blighty readers, munter = unattractive person.
