Footballing legends Lee Sharpe and Peter Reid joined the Jet2holidays Party Plane Roadshow in Manchester on Thursday.

From discussing their love of the game and predictions on who will win the Premier League title this season, to the future of English football and of course where they love to go on holiday, the stars kept people entertained with a special question and answer session.

Also joining in the fun in Manchester were Jet2holidays TV Allstars members Andrew Whyment (Coronation Street’s Kirk Sutherland) and Ashley Taylor Dawson (Hollyoaks’ Darren Osborne) who were there to get into the spirit entertaining and meeting crowds in Manchester’s Exchange Square.

To celebrate us taking delivery of our 100th aircraft, we launched the Party Plane competition for one person to win the actual aircraft for a weekend. The aircraft will be your very own VIP Party Plane that flies you to Majorca, where you can enjoy a weekend of fun, sun and celebrations. Not only will you get to invite 99 of your friends and family along, but celebrity presenter Rylan Clark-Neal will join your group to make the trip even more memorable.

Your VIP group will jet off from one of our nine UK bases on Friday 26th April and head to the 4-star Melia Calvia Beach in Majorca for the weekend, where you will make memories to last a lifetime. To be in with a chance of winning, we are calling on you to get creative and choose your own party themes. Whether it’s all the glitter and unicorns you can imagine or rewinding back the years to flares and crazy hair, we will help build the winning party idea into a fun-filled, unforgettable experience!

Discussing his perfect Party Plane celebration, Lee Sharpe said: “I am getting married later this year and it would just be an amazing celebration to have all our friends and family onboard together. It is a great competition.”

For Peter Reid, his Party Plane theme would centre around the king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley.

He said: “I am a big fan of his music. He shaped the future of rock and roll. I would take my daughter and my mum who is 85 and lots more family and friends, it would be a great trip.”

As part of our Party Plane Roadshow which is touring across the UK, Jet2holidays Ready Rooms have appeared at various locations where people can treat themselves to a blow dry or beard trim, manicure or hand massage, as well as glitter face paint to get them in the party spirit. They can then sit on a special airline seat and record a video stating why they think they should win the Party Plane competition. This is then emailed to them so they can include the footage in their Party Plane entry by visiting

To enter the Party Plane competition, visit to create your very own aircraft. When entering, you can name the plane, create your own music soundtrack, and even select the dress code. The Jet2holidays team also want to hear about what theme you would like and why you deserve to win.

The deadline for entries is Wednesday, 20th March 2019.
