7 of our favourite videos from the Milk Tray Man contenders


After months of auditions Cadbury are to reveal their new Milk Tray Man nearly fifty years after the original advert aired.

Interested contenders were asked to send a video convincing judges why they were the best man for the job. Many were uploaded publicly to YouTube so we’ve collected the best of the bunch for you to enjoy before the successful applicant is unmasked.

1. Gavin Baxter goes for the ‘people’s champion’ approach

2. One guy used the audition to get a little too close to his cat

3. Kyle James tried to woo the judges with his impressive Rubik’s Cube skills

4. This gentleman’s film noir approach was certainly interesting

5. This man just owns far too many dressing-up costumes

6. This guy thinks it’s an application for The Apprentice

7. And one shameless dad used his children to try and win the role

If this has whet your appetite there are plenty more to enjoy.
