Woman Who Plans To Marry Her Duvet Almost Got Cold Feet
49-year-old Pascale Sellick shocked the world when she announced she was in the 'most intimate and reliable relationship' she'd ever had, with her duvet and they had plans to tie the knot.
However, after going viral with her relationship, Pascale has revealed that she faced some doubts about going ahead with the ceremony, due to it all being a 'bit overwhelming'.
She said: "I never expected it to go global; we just wanted a bit of local publicity to advertise the event.
"I know very little about the media and the next thing I knew the story had thousands of shares, clicks and comments. That was a bit overwhelming.
"Some of the comments were positive but some were not. It's a new world to have people commenting about me when they know nothing about me and I am acting the role of a bride."
Pascale said that her doubts started after she appeared on the ITV show This Morning and during the interview Phillip Scholfield seemed particularity interested to find out if there were any sexual feelings between Pascale and her duvet.
She said she later did get an apology off Phil, but felt it was 'too late' as she's already received massive amounts of attention for her unique situation.
She said: "I think he knew what he was doing. By the time he apologised the damage was done.
"I think I'm done with the media. The story gets more and more twisted as time goes on. It has changed and has lost some of what I was hoping to achieve."
The artist from Exeter explained the whole thing started with an idea from an idea from an artist called Anna Fitzgerald in order to promote self-care and self-worth on Valentine's Day.
She said: "People think you need to be in a relationship to be happy. It doesn't matter if you're single on Valentine's Day as you can enjoy just having a duvet day; that was the original idea.
"It was suggested I was the perfect person for playing the role of the bride because apparently I'm outgoing and have the right personality for it. I kind of agreed not knowing what was really involved."
Despite any doubts, Pascale is still set to marry her duvet on Sunday 10 February - just in time for the day of love.
"I'm the sort of woman who if I say I'll do something I will do it," she explained.
"I am completely committed, as are the whole team of us behind it, and they have been very supportive. But deep down I wish I had never started it."
