Scotching the Lotto rumours?

The article “Connolly ads face the chop” (MW October 3) was misleading and did not reflect in any way Camelot’s response given to an enquiry from the journalist.

Camelot still has a number of ads to deploy using Billy Connolly, including next week when the campaign for the new midweek Thunderball launches.

Connolly’s contract with Camelot runs until March. I am happy to confirm too, that Camelot’s marketing spend is not in doubt and will represent the 1.5 per cent of turnover it committed to with the National Lottery Commission.
