Jackie Weaver, who made Handforth famous, bags Disney advertising deal

The celebrity of Jackie Weaver continues to rise - and we couldn't be more proud of her.

Perhaps the most famous face to rise to fame from Zoom, Jackie Weaver put Handforth on the map earlier this year, when theatrics of a Handforth Parish Council meeting from late 2020 went viral.

Some members of the Council disagreed with Weaver, particularly in her being labelled as a Clerk.

But Jackie Weaver, who is chief executive of the Cheshire Association of Local Councils, can now add 'zombie' to her list of titles, with nobody telling her otherwise.

It comes as she has dressed up as the horror monster, in a paid promotion for the return of TV show The Walking Dead.

All previous ten seasons of American television show will be be shown in the UK on Star, which is part of the Disney+ streaming service.

Weaver has launched new zombie Zoom filters, to allow anyone the authority to do as they wish during a video call.

The local democracy champion said on social media:

"If you've been feeling downright dead after a day of work video calls, or feeling the need to bite your colleagues head off. Then I'm here to help and tell you about a brand new service.

"If like me, you're feeling DEAD TIRED of incessant video calls, you can book one of my zombie friends to take your place.

"To celebrate seasons 1-10 of The Walking Dead landing on Star on Disney Plus on July 2, we've launched the new service so you can duck out of meetings to tune in."

She currently lives 46.9 miles away from Handforth near Whitchurch in Shrophshire, and it is unknown if she will be ever invited to provide advice at future Handforth Parish Council meetings.

The eleventh and final season of The Walking Dead will also be available to watch online from next month.

The zombified Weaver advertisement follows a high-profile cameo at The Brit Awards earlier this year.

She has 30,000 followers on Twitter @jackieweaver.
