LONDON - Daz has taken its soap-opera-style Cleaner Close campaign to a new level, roping in soap royalty to play three characters in this latest instalment.

The 30-second TV ad, created by Leo Burnett, features Julie Goodyear, who played Bet Gilroy in Coronation Street, Dean Gaffney (Robbie Jackson in EastEnders), and Sue Jenkins, who portrayed Brookside's Jackie Corkhill.

The spot, which promotes the performance of Daz Liquitabs at 30 degrees, opens on Goodyear washing her soiled wedding dress at a laundrette as she prepares to walk down the aisle for the fourth time.

When Gaffney questions the marriage, Goodyear reveals, in a soap-style dénouement, that she has been deceiving him as to the true identity of his father.
