Bettys marketing director, Martin Burke said: “This TV advert is a first for Bettys and we’re really excited that it is a Christmas ad. "Christmas is a hugely special time of year for us – it’s when our artisan bakers, chocolatiers and confectioners really get to pull out all the stops. "We’ve worked with a range of wonderfully creative people to make this little film and we really hope it will help get people into the festive spirit.”
