Almost 1m people attended Notting Hill Carnival’s annual carnival last weekend. One of them, Colette Zacca, left with viral fame and an underwear deal with German brand Sloggi.
The 56-year-old from Stamford Hill has been dubbed “Dancing Granny” online after videos of her dancing amidst the Carnival went viral, amassing more than 500,000 views.
Hundreds of carnival goers watched Zacca, dressed in a neon pink body-suit, vibrant blue pants and net tights, strut her stuff at the Rampage Stage after she gained the attention of the MC.
“I’m not an actual granny because I don’t have any kids, but I quite like it!” Zacca told Stylist.
Her confident moves caught the attention of German underwear brand Sloggi, which signed her up immediately to take part in the firm’s 40th anniversary celebrations.
Zacca said: “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.”
