A DESPERATE Thomas Cook worker has been forced to sell her wedding dress on eBay after losing her job when the travel giant went bust.
The woman, from Taunton, Somerset, is flogging her brand new gown for £500 to help pay for “upcoming bills”.
In her advert, she says her husband also worked for Thomas Cook and the firm’s collapse has “turned our world upside down”.
She wrote: “Brand New Stella York wedding dress size 10. RRP £1400.
