The TV ad aired this weekend and was created by Publicis London.

The clip begins with the words "What is Va Va Voom?" appearing on the screen, followed by a montage featuring Hollywood film stars Marlon Brando and Audrey Hepburn.

Von Teese is shot stripping her underwear off while being watched by a number of onlookers, including Henry, who has appeared in several Clio 'va va voom' ads from 2002 onwards.

Phil York, marketing director at Renault UK, said: "We've filmed a brand new Renault Clio 'Va Va Voom' ad because the campaign is still so popular after five years off the air."
