Two Northern Ireland women have been included among the finalists in The Sun's 'Bust in Britain' competition to find the UK's best cleavage.

The competition has divided public opinion and was hijacked earlier in the week as men began trolling them, pointing out that the newspaper did not state that it was only for women.

 

It has been met with criticism and branded sexist online.

The competition by the newspaper offers readers the chance to win £1,000 and a Sun photoshoot, if they send in a picture of their cleavage.

Can too much cleavage be too much?
