Raise £2,000 for one date? He must be one really special guy!

And Hayley Lloyd from Rugby, Warks, certainly believed he was, after she did just that after a Twitter chat with Gogglebox's George Gilbey turned into a challenge.

George became famous on Gogglebox

The 39-year-old was had set herself a target of raising £2,000 through a sponsored skydive for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign after her eight-year-old son, Tommy, was diagnosed with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy.

So when she got in touch with Essex lad George, 30, on Twitter, he agreed to go on a date with her if she met her target - and even do the skydive with her if she managed to raise another £1,000 on top of that.

And that is exactly what she's done.

Hayley told the Daily Star: "There's something about him that just warms my heart. I thought I'd be cheeky and just get in touch on Twitter and see what he said. I just couldn't believe it when he agreed."

Ever the gentleman, George offered to go to Hayley for their date but, as she wanted a picture on his sofa, the pair are meeting this Saturday in his hometown of Clacton-on-Sea.

He said: "Hayley seem really nice and it's for a great cause."

Both Hayley and George are set for the jump in Brackley, Northants, in September this year.

Good luck!
