She hasn't even been invited to fly with them herself.

Appearing on The Official Vodafone Big Top 40, she said: “I’m gonna just say to Jet2 and to everybody out there, look - I didn’t make them do it like that.

“I agreed to, you know, let them have my song and, you know, I apologise if it annoys you!

She continued: “Thing is I understand though, when you hear something over and over again and apparently they play it like seven times before they take off so… You know, it’s a lot!

Jess even admitted she hadn’t been invited to fly with Jet2 herself, despite them using her number one hit for their marketing campaign.

“Why haven’t they invited me?” she joked. “Take me away guys!

“Maybe I’ll just book a flight soon on Jet2. Just sing it. Get the little mic thing and be like right guys, I got a little treat for ya’.

“I’m gonna maybe see if I can do that! Next time someone’s flying to Majorca, it’ll be me on the mic!”

The airline previously stood by their decision to play Jess’s song multiple times during their flights, with a spokesperson insisting “the concept is very popular with customers”.

“We receive a huge amount of positive feedback about both the advert and the song,” they said. 

In another tweet responding to a disgruntled passenger sent from the official Jet2 account, a rep also said: “We’re sorry to hear that you’re not a fan of the song and we’ll be sure to pass this on to the team! We find Jess Glynne gets us in the holiday spirit.”
