The winner of a social media competition to become an extra on Jet2holidays’ latest TV advert used it as an opportunity to propose to his girlfriend.
Matt Bonsall, from Hyde in Manchester, got down on bended knee and popped the question to a surprised Jen Price who immediately said yes in front of a cheering cast and crew in Majorca.
When he found out he had won he asked the company if it could help him plan the proposal.
Bonsall said: “I had been planning to propose next year in New York but when I won this competition I thought I would do it on the Jet2holidays TV ad set.
“It’s not every day you have a full camera crew to record such a momentous moment. I must admit I was nervous beforehand but I’m absolutely thrilled Jen said yes.”
The couple, who have been together for two and a half years, are planning a wedding in Ibiza. They have already had one bridesmaid request from their niece who took the winning picture for the competition.
Jet2.com and Jet2holidays chief executive, Steve Heapy, said: “We want people to have memorable experiences with us so when Matt asked for our help with his surprise proposal we were only too happy to lend a hand.
“We’re thrilled to have played a part in Matt and Jen’s special day and we wish them a very happy future together.”
