IT'S not every day you see a giant Greggs pasty walking through the centre of Newcastle but for one woman and her friends, they experienced just that.

That's because North East woman and bride-to-be, Stephanie King delivered herself in what appeared to be a giant pasty wrapper ahead of her hen do.

Arriving at Newcastle Central Station in the bizarre attire, which involved a personalised message and supersized wrapper, friends were left in hysterics.

And the entire moment was captured on social media, sending the internet into a frenzy and going viral in the space of just a few minutes.

By around 5pm on Friday, thousands had "liked" the relatively short video on Twitter as it gained momentum.

Describing it anywhere from "superb" to "brilliant," the video prompted much reaction from people congratulating her on her engagement.

Meanwhile, others began tagging their friends on the social media platform and even the viral social media account Lad Baby, suggesting they should try it.

The huge pasty wrapper, a supersized version of the glorious wrappers we are all too familiar with, adorned the words "bride-to-be."

It also had words of caution in what can sort of be described as "small print," and said: "Caution: It's Steph's hen do. Please take care to avoid injury when dancing on tables."

Replacing the iconic Greggs wording, the brand was replaced with "Greens," before moving on to "Bride to be, Let's get this hen on a sausage roll."

Giving a hint of how such scenes came to be, on social media she admitted she actually works for the Newcastle-based bakery firm's marketing team.

The Social and Digital Content Creator at Greggs added: "When it's your hen but you work in marketing for Greggs."

But sadly for some, it probably means that it's unlikely ordinary members of the public, who just so happen to be Greggs fans, will actually be able to acquire a similar outfit for their own consumption.
