A modest little caf on Southwark’s Great Suffolk Street got the star treatment when Gary Lineker and Paddy McGuinness showed up to film the latest Walkers crisps ad. Pitching up for the lunchtime rush, they were busy making crisp sandwiches for unsuspecting members of the public.

If you haven’t seen the ad on TV yet, take a look at it here.

FilmFixer manages the Film Office service for Southwark Council. FilmFixer director Andrew Pavord popped by during filming in July. He says, “It was a really good-natured shoot, with unsuspecting members of the public dropping by for their everyday lunch order and finding two brilliant celebs behind the counter.

“One lucky member of the public, who was already quite excited about meeting Paddy McGuinness, really did find £10,000 in her sandwich – imagine her surprise.

“We’re so pleased to welcome these well managed shoots into Southwark – they deliver great value to advertisers and they’re great fun for locals.”
