REALITY show winners Becky Maslen and Danny Smith are cashing in on their new-found fame by opening an online fashion boutique.

The couple, from Sowerby Bridge, decided to launch Buu Bazaar after the outfits Becky wore on Tool Academy caughts viewers’ eyes.

The 23-year-old said: “I have always had a passion for fashion, in particular dresses.

“After being on Tool Academy I got a lot of Tweets about where I had bought my clothes from, so I thought I should set up a business where girls can buy the dresses and outfits from me.”

Becky and Danny, 24, were crowned winners of the hit E4 show in February. He proposed to her on camera in the final episode – and she said yes.

Newly-engaged Becky said her website’s typical customer would be “a young stylish woman who socialises with friends by going shopping and going out to pubs and clubs”. The site will stock mainly dresses for party and casual wear.

A Facebook competition is being held to celebrate the launch of the new business.

Entrants are being asked to post a photo of themselves on www.facebook.com/buubazaar striking their best pose in their favourite dress.
