When you go to party at Notting Hill Carnival and end up getting a modelling contract...
Notting Hill Carnival's already-legendary Dancing Granny, real name Colette Zacca headed out in the searing heat wearing a skin-tight pink body suit, fishnet tights with blue granny pants over the top and a multi-coloured sequin jacket - now she's been signed up to model for a popular clothing brand.
After living her best life at the recent London carnival, Colette was spotted at the West London carnival's Rampage stage and was called up by the DJ to dance on stage and show the crowd her moves.
As you can see in the video above Colette was loving life at Notting Hill Carnival and talking about her new modelling deal she said, "What a day! It’s all been a bit of a blur since yesterday and I think I’m still in denial this is all happening. I’ve been wearing sloggis for years, and after two hip replacements never did I think I’d dance again, let alone be signed by sloggi – what an honour!"
Paul Gautier, Regional General Manager for sloggi said "Sometimes these scripts write themselves and as soon as our we spotted the footage of granny twerking in sloggis, we were desperate to track her down. We already had plenty of plans in the pipeline to celebrate our 40th Anniversary and the re-release of our bestselling Maxi Cut, but we're big believers in seizing the moment so we're delighted to shine the spotlight on granny."
We can't wait to see Colette strut her stuff in her debut campaign - you go Granny!
