The agency won the business after a pitch and will now create a TV and digital campaign for Admiral that will break later this summer.

Admiral called the review in December last year and appointed the AAR to oversee the process.

CST's appointment marks the first time that the Admiral Group-owned brand has held a relationship with an external creative agency. It has previously used an in-house marketing team to create its ad campaigns.

Other campaigns have featured Sir Steve Redgrave.
