We’re delighted to announce the launch of our latest TV ad; the second to star the UK’s favourite homestyle consultant, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen!

Launching on Channel 4 on Christmas Day, before rolling out nationally from Boxing Day, the ad gives viewers a sneak peek at our star employee’s unique modus operandi when it comes to quality control.

Victor and Ian also return, aiding Mr Llewelyn-Bowen as he endeavours to ensure the style of our bathroom products via an impromptu tapware fashion show.

The light-hearted and comedic clip will be supported by extensive YouTube, national print, and Sunday supplement campaigns - with billboards for a ‘special project’ coming in the Spring.

Keen-eyed viewers of 2020’s Big Fat Quiz of the Year on Boxing Day will catch it during breaks, but those who can’t wait can check out our ‘Star Quality Check’ TV ad in all its glory below.


Since its launch in April 2019, our previous campaign starring Laurence has been seen over 500 million times across TV, billboards, graphics, and print media.

This, combined with our excellent working relationship, made it a no-brainer for us to further our collaboration with the Changing Rooms star - who is currently hard at work rebooting the hit show for Channel 4 with presenter Davina McCall.
