Marks & Spencer is reported to have signed television stars Joanna Lumley, John Sergeant and Stephen Fry to star in its key Christmas advertising campaign.

The three will be paid around £100,000 each for the £5m campaign according to the Daily Mail, and will star alongside current M&S face Twiggy.

Marks & Spencer is well known for its high-profile advertising campaigns in the lead up to the festive period, which always attract big names.

Last year pop group Take That came together with Lily Cole, Myleene Klass, Erin O’Connor and Twiggy for the campaign.

The year before, Spanish actor Antonio Banderas starred in the adverts.
