Ed Westwick made an announcement yesterday that he has a surprise for fans at 1pm & he signed it off with "XOXO". Rumours went wild of GG making a comeback. Then when the surprise was unveiled, it turned out to be a product launch, of masks with "XOXO" written on them. Too funny! pic.twitter.com/jkP77oBPpD
