The new push includes a 30-second TV ad with Mortimer as Bombardier Bedford, timed to coincide with St George's Day, England's national day, Charles Wells said today. The ad will be supported by social media activations.

Mortimer replaces Rik Mayall, who died last year, in the role of Bombardier Bedford. Mayall had played the Bedford character in a string of Bombardier ads since 2011.
