‘Right, listen, before – sorry – before you interrupt me!’ she snapped at the 60-year-old, before stating that Lorraine had asked her a question and that she was going to answer it.

They also discussed the fact that Pearl was known as Miss Africa South, rather than South Africa.

She said: ‘[They said], “Pearl you’re going to be miss Africa South”. This didn’t matter to me at the time – I thought I’m going to have this amazing opportunity, that’s what mattered to me at the time.

‘I think it celebrates more than [beauty]. I’m talking from a South African perspective – the girls entering this competition are going for the opportunity, they’re not concerned about that.

Pearl explained that back in the day they would measure the women’s ‘buttocks, hips, that kind of things’ and that she’s glad ‘this isn’t happening today, not at all’.

I didn’t think in my time that I was flaunting my body,’ she added.
