Fairy Liquid has banked on its reputation to last longer than other washing-up brands. And its advertising relationship with Grey certainly lasted longer than most: the WPP agency had held the brand's ad account since 1983.

Here, we take a look at the most memorable ads for Fairy by Grey, from its early work with actress Nanette Newman through to its recent work with the Make a Wish foundation.

"Tables" (1984)

"Cubs" (1987)
