Tom Fletcher from McFly, together with his girlfriend Giovanna Falcone
Grange Brentwood were pleasantly surprised when Tom walked into the Showroom one day in August 2009. Mark Butcher was the member of the team who greeted Tom, Mark said That he "recognised him straight away... My 4 daughters are big fans. Tom actually came back to the showroom with Giovanna his girl friend to meet my girls and presented them with a signed CD each, he also bought Danny from the band to meet them they were delighted."
Tom originally was interested in buying an Aston Martin, but after visiting his parents one day, felt he couldn't justify the purchase when they had an ageing Vauxhall. He decided as a surprise to treat them to a 58 plate Jaguar X Type Jaguar 2.2 SE d saloon, as he knew his Dad had always wanted a Jaguar. Tom was specifically after a diesel for fuel economy.
Tom and Giovanna told Mark that Tom's Mum and Dad were very emotional and delighted when he presented them with the keys.
Tom is driving a Mini Cooper at the moment. He said he is not ready for an Aston Martin yet, but maybe he will visit us again at Grange Brentwood when he does treat himself.
