Retail Gazette Loves: M&S tills voiced by Ant & Dec and BGT judges

Marks and Spencer

Marks & Spencer shoppers were left surprised when they heard TV presenters Ant and Dec’s voices through the self-checkout tills recently.

The TV presenting duo’s voices were used to provide voice-overs for the retailer, virtually instructing shoppers at the tills.

Many shoppers took to Twitter to express their surprise, which was mostly positive.

M&S didn’t just decide to surprise its shoppers with the Britain’s Got Talent hosts, but it also had the show’s judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, Simon Cowell and David Walliams provide voice-overs at its tills.

The sponsorship is the first time M&S has ever teamed up with a TV show.

The initiative was launched at M&S’s UK stores just in time for Britain’s Got Talent – which aired its first 2019 episode on April 6.

  1. Me too. It the last thing I want. Calm is so much pleasanter.
    Not a fan of talent shows and their ridicule of those untalented people who are misguided enough to appear on TV.
