    Jane Horrocks is starting to sound a bit mumsy in the Tesco TV ad voiceovers these days.

    I reckon she's being groomed to replace Prunella Scales in the top job.
     
  2. A bit mumsy? Has she got big: Horrocks?

    But, aren't they mother and daughter in the ads, and don't they both have sort of posh yorkshire accents?

    After what you were saying about corporate clothing yesterday, I'm surprised to see you give free advertising by printing the name of a large capitalist venture. Have they got you on a retainer or do you get first choice of the expired sell by date products?
    Come on Abitrary, what are you up to, there is a lack of consistency here.

    I'm not promoting them - i'm just curious about their insidious advertising techniques

    When was the last time you saw an advertising family dynasty? Don't say the OXO family, because the latest one is just an updated version and not related by blood to the last one
     
  8. The Osmonds / The Jackass Five..?

    Not fictional, and don't think they were synonymous with a particular product

    YORKSHIRE? jane horrocks is from the rochdale area, or was.quite like the way she pronounces tesco, just like we do:biggrin:
     
  14. She's from Hawkshaw, Lancs (between Ramsbottom and Bolton). When I hear her talk it reminds me of home...;)

    knew it was somewhere round there, though i don't think her accent is as strong as it used to be.
