Love Island’s Rebecca has been spotted modelling for Lidl

It’s one thing being a pageant queen, but coveted middle aisle of Lidl is true success


Rebecca from Love Island has said approximately 867 times that she’s a model. But somehow she managed to miss out that in her glowing portfolio she’s modelled for a budget supermarket.

Yes, photos which appear to be Love Island 2020 contestant Rebecca Gormley modelling a blanket have been spotted in Lidl. She told her fellow Islanders all about her high flying modelling career, how she’s been Miss Newcastle and also won Miss bare-faced Newcastle – so she must just be waiting for a better time to bring up her glamorous blanket shoot.

Fans have been spotting the pictures in Lidl and taking to Twitter to share their shock. One said: “When Rebecca said she was a model, she didn’t mention it was for Lidl did she?”

Another posted a different picture, of the same blanket, captioned: “Am I high or is this Rebecca from Love Island? Found in the middle of Lidl.”

The blanket is the Meradiso Blanket, which is labelled as £14.99 in the pictures, but on their website is a steal at just £7.99. It’s described as a “cosy blanket with soft backing, made from high-quality microfibre, size: 150 x 200cm.” And Rebecca does look comfy.

The pictures do look strikingly like her. It’s one thing being a beauty pageant queen, but you know you’ve truly made it when you’re in the coveted Lidl middle aisle.

Rebecca has also modelled wedding dresses

Before entering the villa, Rebecca did a wedding photoshoot outside a church. She modelled a number of different dresses and bouquets. Now all she needs is the groom.
