Bourneville-based Cadbury have announced that they're searching for a new star to play the famous 'Milk Tray Man' role in a new series of adverts.

The well-known figure famously risked life and limb to deliver a box of milk chocolates to an unidentified female in a series of television adverts.

James Coombes, who played the Milk Tray man role from 1987, appears in the new advert encouraging new applicants to apply.

Despite the job title being the 'Milk Tray Man', women can also apply for the job. Characteristics the company are looking for in the new Milk Tray star include:

  • Understanding what thoughtfulness is

  • Having a sense of adventure

  • Welcoming the limelight

  • Being good in front of a camera

  • Being physically fit
