A beagle from South Wales has won a national competition to become the new face of M&S Pet Insurance .
Judges in the M&S Pet Star contest named five-month-old Molly, who lives with the Mainwaring family in Blackwood, Gwent, as the overall winner. M&S Pet Insurance customers were asked to submit a photo and a few words about why their cat or dog is a star.
Molly is to have a professional photo shoot and be featured in promotional material for a forthcoming M&S Pet Insurance campaign. The Mainwaring family will receive £100 worth of M&S vouchers .
Amanda Newman, M&S Head of Marketing, said: “The huge response to the competition illustrates the fact that we are a nation of cat and dog lovers . It was wonderful to spend time looking through all the photos and reading why the cats and dogs mean so much to their owners.”
