Alan Carr's advert takeover

Channel 4's Comedy Gala. Alan Carr.

Viewers watching during the first two advert breaks saw Alan Carr once again crashing the adverts. This year he gave a comedy makeover to six brands: Domino's Pizza,, MoneySuperMarket, Plenty, Premier Inn and Victorian Plumbing.

Alan put on a Domino's uniform for his version of their 'So tasty the Mouth Boggles!' ad. For, Alan falls out with an excited Chris de Burgh obsessive and reveals he's a closet Bucks Fizz fan, whilst Dave and Colin from MoneySuperMarket found themselves taking on a new adversary in the Comedy Gala edition of the #EpicDanceOff ad.

Plenty's Juan Sheet faced some tough competition from Alan, whilst Premier Inn's most recent ad featuring Lenny Henry underwent a comedy makeover for the takeover. Victorian Plumbing's animated ad features a live action Alan for his interpretation of their bathroom marketing.
