Shake Head New Iceland Adverts

What was Kerry Catona thinking of agreeing to do those adverts? They must be paying her a lot of money

Wasn't she from some dodgy girl band, a 'glamour' model, and on that celebrety island thing? If so, it's not really suprising that she's doing adverts. Just look at the more successfull-but-equally-less-talented-and-arguably-prettier Holly Vallance, advertising some second-rate 192-like company.

More like, "What are Iceland doing, lowering themselves to this level?".

She was in the original Atomic Kitten line-up, she was replaced by Jenny Frost.

Seriously, you should have read the internal memo when Head Office announced that she was doing the adverts for the relaunch a couple of months ago. I laughed my head off!

Bring back the penguins!!!!

I'm sure she was voted "Mum of the year" last year which fits in with the whole "Mums gone to Iceland" theme.
Or was that last seen in the 80's?

I swear I heard that all the papers were slagging her off for being a complete waste of space when it came to being a a mother though

I nearly **** myself clicking that Bingos link when she screams at you

At the start of the Iceland ad she's wearing so much makeup she looks like a clown, I thought it was a circus advert or something. Surprised she didn't start juggling the chickens or something.

It's possible. Company hasn't made profit this year, despite about 2 billion in income IIRC. Hence this whole relaunch thing.

I can't see myself working for them much longer, even though it's only part time whilst I'm at Uni.

In fairness, she was in Atomic Kitten and won "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here" and appeared on loads of TV shows. .

What have you done that makes you feel able to refer to her as a nobody?
