Controversial payday loan lender Wonga has denied it actively shows adverts during children's TV programmes, arguing it has a "strict, long-standing policy" not to advertise to young adults.
Wonga is well known for its TV ads featuring a trio of elderly puppet characters named Betty, Joyce and Earl who explain the process of taking out a short-term cash loan to viewers.
The idea that Wonga advertises on children's TV channels or programmes is a myth. We have a strict, long-standing policy not to advertise in this way.
Their denial came after a group of MPs called for a ban on payday loan adverts during children's TV shows.
