Since first publishing this article new information has come to light regarding the rumours that that Virgin Atlantic will poke fun at the easyJet incident.

Sir Richard Branson has publicly denied the rumours.

Branson tweeted on Monday night; "Kate Moss @virginatlantic ad story is a Storm (model) in a teacup. It also happens to be completely false".

Below the original article as it appeared:

Los Angeles - Kate Moss could be set to star in a new campaign for Virgin Atlantic.

The 41-year-old supermodel was reportedly escorted off of an easyJet flight by police following a weekend in Turkey earlier this month and is now said to be in talks with Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson to poke fun at the incident in a new string of adverts.

A source told the Mail on Sunday newspaper that Virgin Atlantic plan to use Kate to take a dig at the budget airline to "show how much better Virgin's service is'.

It wouldn't be the first time the blonde beauty - who is married to The Kills rocker Jamie Hince and has 12-year-old daughter Lila Grace with ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack - has teamed up with Branson either.

In 2005, when her career was threatened by allegations she'd been taking cocaine, Sir Richard featured her in an advert for Virgin Mobile.

Meanwhile, it was claimed Kate had to be escorted off of the flight after "kicking" off because they'd "run out of the sandwiches she wanted".

A witness said at the time: "I was asleep at the back of the plane when she woke me up with her shouting.

'She was sitting at the back with her friend and they were kicking off because the plane had run out of the sandwiches she wanted.

"The flight attendants were taking a break at the back and eating their food when Kate shouted, 'It's fucking all right for them to eat pasta when we're hungry'.

"She kept using bad language and one of the flight attendants seemed upset."
