A telecoms engineer from Brentwood is set to be the poster boy for a new advertising campaign.

Ken Cheek, 54, will be splashed on adverts across the country as one of four faces of a new campaign for the Volkswagon Transporter.

Ken, who owns his own telecommunications business, was picked from thousands of customers to win the chance of being featured alongside his black can with the name of his firm Five Star Comms.

Ken said: “When I first heard from the ad agency I took it with a pinch of salt. Then they told me I would be famous for the whole of the summer.

“It only hit home at the photo shoot. It took so long to do it, I realised it was serious.”
