A former marketing and events manager at Mantra Club and Lounge in Norwich, has landed her reality debut in new MTV series Spring Break with Grandad.

The series follows eight twenty-somethings as they travel to Cancun in Mexico for a summer of fun, but there’s a catch - their grandparents have to come along too.

Paige Fitzsimmons, aged 24, will appear in the new MTV show which starts on Monday, February 6 at 10pm.

She will star alongside her Grandad Bob Fitzsimmons who is a Norfolk cab driver.

Miss Fitzsimmons said: “I got head hunted on Facebook and then ran off to tell my grandad who lives near Dereham.

“He wasn’t sure at first, but then said ‘Why not!’ The good thing about my grandad is that he isn’t easily shocked.”

The show challenges each grandparent-grandchild duo to out party each other in order to stay at Spring Break.

The competition is judged by Geordie Shore’s Gary Beadle who has been in the Newcastle-based reality show since it started in 2011.

Alongside him will be his grandad Raymond who often features in Geordie Shore giving his grandson advice on long-term love interest Charlotte Crosby.

In series three they also travelled to Cancun for Spring Break.

Paige currently works as a make-up artist in London and enjoys several romances whilst appearing on the new reality series.

She studied at Litcham High School and Dereham Sixth Form and has previously worked as a marketing and events manager at both Mantra and Bond No.28 Tombland in Norwich.

She added: “I learned that you don’t have to worry about what your parents or grandparents think because they have been in your shoes and done it a million times over!

“I don’t think my grandad Bob realised I was so wild and yes, he did have a few words with me.”

She hopes this will be the start of her celebrity career and lead to other reality TV appearances.
