TEENAGER Gemma Auld says she is enjoying being ‘semi-famous’ after turning up to her school prom on a Chopper bike.

Gemm, 16, a student at Admiral Lord Nelson School, Portsmouth, said strangers stopped her in the street after she arrived on the bike at the Marriott Hotel, in North Harbour.

She said: ‘I knew I wanted to make an entrance at the prom but I didn’t realise I would become semi-famous as a result! ‘I bought the Chopper with £200 inheritance from my great-grandmother, Lilian Hannam. I’ve called it Lily after her.’
