Use this:
'Remove all tags
    Private Function RemoveTags(ByVal inp As String) As String
        Dim res As String

        res = inp.Substring(0, inp.IndexOf("<"))
        inp = inp.Substring(inp.IndexOf("<"))

        Do While inp.IndexOf("<") >= 0
            inp = inp.Substring(inp.IndexOf(">") + 1)
            If inp.IndexOf("<") >= 0 Then
                res &= inp.Substring(0, inp.IndexOf("<"))
            Else
                res &= inp
            End If
        Loop

        res = res.Replace("&nbsp;", " ")
        res = res.Replace(vbCr, " ")
        res = res.Replace(vbLf, " ")

        Do While res.IndexOf("  ") >= 0
            res = res.Replace("  ", " ")
        Loop
        Return res

    End Function
