Tragic death of former Miss Costa del Sol

SPAIN’S FIRST Miss Universe, Amparo Muñoz, died at her Málaga home after a long illness – aged just 56.

Born in Vélez-Málaga on 21 June 1954, she was crowned Miss Costa del Sol at 19, became Miss Spain on 22 July 1974 and went on to win the Miss Universe contest held in Manila (Philippines).

She renounced the international crown after six months and moved into acting. During a stormy life she was married three times and had problems with drugs – experiences related in her 2005 memoirs La Vida es el Precio (Life is the Price).
