WHITBY was featured on television screens across the country as a Morrison’s ad starring Ant and Dec was screened for the first time last night (Thursday 8 Feb).
The commercial was shot in the town last month and the Geordie pair were happy to take time out to chat to fans and of course the Whitby Gazette about their visit.
Ant and Dec spent the day on the Fish Quay shooting scenes before going out to sea on a working trawler boat.
The 30 second ad showcases the town, its harbour and Whitby Abbey in the background as the pair sail out to sea.
Belinda Youngs, corporate brand marketing director of Morrisons, said: “It really is time for our in store specialists to shine on national TV alongside our celebrity stars, Ant and Dec.
“These adverts showcase more of what matters, our skilled counter staff providing shoppers the best service, fresh products and great Morrisons’ value.
“It also reminds the viewers that they can have their food any way they like it because we have trained specialists who can prepare, make, bake, fillet and cut like only we can.
“The new ads really celebrate the thousands of talented people in our stores and ensure the nation (and Ant and Dec!) now know the reasons why Morrisons is the supermarket where fresh food and expertise matter more.”
