Take That join festivities in M&S Christmas ad

LONDON - The Marks & Spencer gang is all here for its latest Christmas extravaganza, and they're joined for the second year by none other than Take That.

The boy-banders cosy up by the fireside with Twiggy, Erin O'Connor, Lily Cole, Myleene Klass and Noémie Lenoir.

The ad is shot in a traditional home-movie style and the soundtrack is the Christmas classic Winter Wonderland, sung by Macy Gray.

The boys and girls get up to all the usual Christmas larks; enjoying mince pies, board games, a snowball ?fight and kissing under the mistletoe.

But, in a surprise twist on Christmas Day, Gary Barlow gets a bra-and-knicker set.
