A lucky couple could win a two week trip to the Caribbean island of Antigua thanks to reggae star Shaggy.

Virgin Holidays has appointed the two-time GRAMMY winner as Chief Caribbean Officer to proudly represent his home area and ensure tourists enjoy the best of the region.

In a new film released by Virgin Holidays, Shaggy discovers and reviews the island’s 365 beaches, water sports, zip-line rainforest course, resorts and food and meets the locals, all whilst ensuring the destination is perfect for holidaymakers. 

But, according to Virgin, Shaggy needs a willing Brit to take the reins in Antigua while he promotes his new album.

The successful applicant must be prepared to explore the beaches and rainforest and try the bars and restaurants.

Shaggy said:  “I love travelling around the world to perform, but my journey began in the Caribbean and I still call it home. As Chief Caribbean Officer for Virgin Holidays, I am committed to spreading the word about all of the incredible things that the region has to offer.

“Having just returned from an amazing trip to Antigua, there’s still a lot of ‘work’ to do, so an energetic recruit needs to fill my shoes while I’m on tour for my new album. That means experiencing as many bars, restaurants and activities as possible. It’s a tough gig – but someone has to do it!”

Joe Thompson, Managing Director at Virgin Holidays, said: "Whether you’re looking for a lively getaway or a laid back break, the Caribbean has you covered. We’ve been sending Brits to the Caribbean for over 20 years, and with the help of Shaggy as our Chief Caribbean Officer and his soon-to-be-recruited second in command, we’ll inspire more people to discover this idyllic corner of the world, kicking off with Antigua."

Paula Whitehead, European managing director at Elite Island Resorts, said: “We were delighted to welcome Shaggy to experience everything we have to offer."

She added: "We’re looking forward to welcoming his lucky selected assistant to the island to stay with us too."
