A “dancing granny” who became a viral hit after twerking in a skin-tight body suit at Notting Hill Carnival has been signed by the underwear brand Sloggi.
The video of Colette Zacca dancing on the second day of carnival as revellers chanted “go granny” has been viewed more than half a million times.
From Stamford Hill, Ms Zacca, 56, said she “can’t quite believe” her moment of fame. She said, “I think I’m still in denial this is all happening. After two hip replacements never did I think I’d dance again, let alone be signed by Sloggi — what an honour.”
Despite being dubbed “dancing granny” she said “I’m not an actual granny because I don’t have any kids”.
Speaking about the self-confidence she exudes in the videos, she said: “To be honest, it took me a while to get here.
“Then I hit 40, and I just thought, if I’m still here and still okay, I just need to be grateful for everything I’ve got.”
Sloggi is a German brand, owned by Triumph International, predominantly sells underwear, shapewear and sportswear products designed with a focus on comfort.
