Former TOWIE star Gemma Collins has signed a six figure deal to become the face of budget airline Wizz Air.
THE 39-year-old revealed her latest lucrative deal on Twitter and Instagram after a short break from social media following her split with on/off boyfriend James Argent.
She captioned a mock-up of the airline’s pink aeroplane with her face plastered across the side on Instagram with: “This is the GC here !! Welcome on board BABY !! LETS GO !!!
“Don’t forget your masks and who wants Prosecco ! There’s only one way to travel !!! WHIZZ AIR. ENJOY @wizzair.”
On Twitter she gushed: “There’s only one way to travel whizzair baby!!”. But tweeters were quick to pick on her blunder after spelling the airlne’s name wrong.
One penned: “You need to learn how to spell Wizz Air!”
While another added: “Wizz or whizz????”
However, on the whole GC fans are seemingly delighted about her “exciting news”, enthusing “Beautiful lady, fab plane” and “Yesssss get me a flight to the sunshine.. where the cocktails are!”
Wizz Air confirmed the news on their Instagram, sharing the same picture, captioned: “The new @gemmacollins1 livery. May be coming soon to an airport near you.”
