Miss France may be Mister.

BILLIONAIRE Donald Trump and organisers of his Miss Universe contest spent last night investigating whether Miss France began life as a man.

Elodie Gossuin, aged 19, who arrived yesterday in Puerto Rico for the contest, was due to be interrogated about whether she is a transsexual or a transvestite, Miss Universe officials said.

"Our regulations say that all delegates must be natural-born females," spokeswoman Mary Hilliard McMillan told the New York Daily News.

"If she does turn out to be a man, we'll put her on the first plane back to France."

New York property developer Trump said through a spokeswoman: "It'll be interesting."

Ms McMillan said organisers had not been able to put the question of her sex to Gossuin or her handlers because "they've been travelling".
