Commercial Break: A nice cup of tea with John Shuttleworth

There’s nothing more important than making time for tea, and that sentiment is behind this new ad for Yorkshire Tea, as fronted by the musical legend-in-his-own-shed that is John Shuttleworth.

Shuttleworth could cross over into the mainstream if these ads take off, and now that Susan Boyle has been temporarily shunted off the railway track of fame and glory, the Sheffield-based troubador is perfectly equipped to fill the gap.

If you can’t find the space in your heart to love classic songs like ‘I Can’t Go Back To Savoury Now’ or ‘My Austin Ambassador Y-Reg’ then you’ll never sit down to a cup of tea with us.

    I wonder how many people have heard of him.
  • Bruno
    Hmm John who?

    I went to see this guy live a few years back, he's amazing! He's been on bbc radio a couple of times but is otherwise relatively unknown. I hope this takes off.

    He was right though, Gordon is indeed a moron.

What do you think?
