A British Airways passenger has claimed she was upgraded to business class – as cabin crew members mistook her for Lionesses scorer Chloe Kelly.

The England women's football team defeated Germany 2-1 in the Euros 2022 final on Sunday.

They landed the nation's first major trophy since 1966 – with Chloe Kelly becoming a hero as she scored the final goal in extra-time.

And it's not just the footie legend who is reaping in the rewards – as a TikToker found when travelling on a British Airway flight.

Sophie, who dressed in an England football shirt, shared her special treatment in a post, saying: "So I got a free upgrade to Business and the air hostess thought I was Chloe Kelly."

While looking at the meal options on the menu, a flight attendant approaches and asks what she can get for her.

But then she pauses and asks Sophie: "Were you playing the other night? You look like the girl who scored."

"Chloe Kelly?" Sophie gasps. "You think so? That's the best compliment you could possibly give me that. I'll take that."

She then realises that she might have got an upgrade because of her resemblance to Chloe Kelly.

"Is this what it's like to be Chloe Kelly?" she adds while panning around her very spacious cubicle with loads of leg room.

Sophie also received a complimentary toiletry bag including an eye mask and socks from The White Company.

"Honoured," she wrote in her video caption.

Viewers called Sophie a "legend" for scoring a business class upgrade.

One commented: "You are relevant even more than ever."

A second wrote: "Should have said yes!"

"I would of been like 'yeah I scored the winner'," a third shared.
