A WOMAN from Giffnock is the lucky winner of a competition to fly on a VIP party plane with 99 friends to Majorca.

Kirsty Connor won a nationwide public vote after her 'party plane' was chosen from thousands of entries in a competition run by Jet2holidays.

The 35-year-old mum will be taking friends and family of a trip of a lifetime, as well as friends she met on an online community group.

Kirsty joined the online group while she was on maternity leave and looking for a hobby while she was doing the night feed.

And an upbeat and creative submission won the public vote thanks to video entry based on the soundtrack to the Jet2holidays TV advert, complete with lucky pants, Rylan-themed cake and fancy dress outfits.

Rylan Clark-Neal will be joining the group as a celebrity guest.

Kirsty said: “I am just stunned to have won this amazing competition. We worked tirelessly for three weeks to put this entry together and I cannot believe that we have been chosen from the thousands of fantastic entries.

“It has been an amazing experience and it has really brought everyone in our group together. We’ve all been through our own personal battles in some way or another, but we use each other’s positivity and support to channel each other towards better things, and it doesn’t get better than this.

"John and I enjoy our birthdays this month, so we’ll definitely use the Party Plane as a means to celebrate with those close to us.”

Kirsty’s winning entry was chosen in a public vote out of nine finalists from across the UK that were shortlisted from thousands by Rylan himself.

Rylan Clark-Neal added: “I was absolutely blown away by the thousands of entries that Jet2holidays received, but Kirsty’s showed so much fun and creativity.

"She really deserves this for all the effort and hard work that she has put in.”
