Twiggy, Dannii Minogue, Noemie Lenoir and Myleene Klass will also star in the ad, which shows a traditional British summer party including an egg and spoon race, garden tennis and a bonfire.
The campaign highlights M&S’s food, homeware and fashion collections and uses the strap line, ‘On your Marks for a summer to remember’ in a bid to align the campaign with the Olympic Games despite not being an official partner.
It includes a cover of The Beatles’ Here Comes The Sun performed by Gary Barlow.
The ad breaks on TV tomorrow (4 April) night but will be available to watch on the M&S website from Wednesday morning.
Steve Sharp, executive director of marketing at M&S, says: “It’s going to be the summer of a lifetime for our customers and we want to do something extra special to mark this celebratory year. Just like the Royal Family and our sporting heroes, M&S triggers a unique reaction in the hearts and minds of the British public and this campaign really encapsulates that sense of fondness and nostalgia.”
Redknapp and Snowdon are the faces of the M&S Man and M&S Woman brands. Klass fronts M&S Money.
