Holly Willoughby and David Gandy star in Marks & Spencer’s clothing and home Christmas campaign, which highlights the Christmas ‘must-haves’.

The ad was created by Grey London: “Is it really Christmas without a little M&S magic? To launch this year’s clothing and home campaign, we enlisted the help of the fabulous Holly Willoughby to take us on a tour of the moments that make Christmas. The 60-second spot features a cameo of David Gandy in marigolds, some seriously comfy pants and a game panto dame. But the real stars are the products that show why M&S is home to everyone’s Christmas ‘must-haves’.”

“Christmas in the Willoughby household is a pretty big deal! It is such a special time of year, and for me it really is all about family; I absolutely love it,” said M&S brand ambassador, Holly Willoughby.

“Christmas to us means new PJs for all the family on Christmas Eve, all jumping into our bed Christmas morning to see what Santa has bought us, filling our faces with turkey and mince pies, then a bit of squabbling over the washing up on Christmas afternoon before cuddling up in comfy jumpers to watch a Christmas classic on TV so M&S has pretty much summed up a typical Christmas day, which is why I am so excited to be part of it.”
