Plans to bring back the QE2 to the UK and birth her on the Thames in London will not go ahead according to her owners in Dubai. She was bought by the Dubai Government in 2007 and was to have become a hotel and conference centre but the plans fell through because of the economic crisis.
QE2 was for forty years one of the most iconic ship on the sea and based in Southampton.
Now under a proposal announced earlier this year the liner will sail to Singapore where she will be converted into a 500-room floating hotel.
British investors last week claimed that negotiations were ongoing to strike a last minute deal with its Dubai owners, which would see the QE2 moored on the banks of the Thames.
The company managing the Asia plan for the ship, which is currently undergoing renovation in Dubai, denied that the ship could end up in London, and said that its own project remained on schedule. The ship is expected to make her last ever sailing from Dubai in September.

In a statement Mrs MacColl spoke of her pain that her husband has not seen Eriskay, and that he is not around to see his other two children Cameron and Skye grow up.
The family of missing sailor Timmy MacColl will join members of the Royal Navy later to launch a fresh appeal for information about his disappearance.
