I loved the old Oxo adverts with the cheesy TV family. My dad had a bit of a crush on the ‘mum’ Linda Bellingham and the idea of food being inedible until the addition of some beef stock was fantastic. The Sun is today reporting that there is to be a new Oxo family, with auditions being held to find actors to establish a 21st century version of the beloved favourite.
The commercials used to be known for their special blend of domestic chaos and close-knit family dynamic. Will we now have ASBO kids and divorced parents? If like me, you are loudly tutting and shaking your head at the mere thought, watch one of the classic adverts (below) from yesteryear to warm your cockles and inspire you to have gravy for dinner tonight.
