Woman mistaken for Chloe Kelly on flight

Perhaps she passed by the real Kelly still busy floating on cloud nine

A woman on social media has revealed how she was upgraded to business class on a flight after staff mistook her for England‘s Euro-winning goalscorer Chloe Kelly.

Ironically named @irrelevantsoph on TikTok, the lucky lady was filming herself onboard the plane when one of the attendants asks her, “were you playing last night?… You look like the girl who scored”.

Nevertheless – and despite informing her that she wasn’t actually a famous footballer – she still managed to secure an upgrade to business class. Anything but irrelevant it would seem.

As you can see, the TikToker is bowled over by the comparison, responding: “I’m so glad you said that because that’s a massive compliment… that’s the best compliment you could ever give me – I’ll take that”.

In truth, there’s not much resemblance between the two and if it was the England shirt that convinced her, it’s worth noting that particular kit is a few years old now.

Either way, the attendant was still kind enough to bump her up a class and let the unsuspecting flyer live the high life for a spell, as she swings the camera round to show off a goodie bag packed with and eye mask, complimentary socks and a number of other perks – not least of all plenty of leg room.

While it may have gone to the wrong person, it’s certainly better than the treatment the genuine article received on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday morning. Player of the tournament and golden boot winner Beth Mead‘s rather uncomfortable exchange on Tuesday morning’s episode of ITV’s Lorraine left viewers equally bemused.
