What did people think?

Viewers were that disgruntled that one person said it was an 'acheivement' to make such a bad advert.

Another said they hadn't thought 2020 could get any worse!

Keeping busy

The pair have been doing the rounds on TV, even during lockdwon. They also appeared on Gogglebox the night before, with the first episode of the second series of the Celebrity version of the show.

Take That had joined forces for fans, with Gary giving an emphatic performance as he and the band virtually reunited via video call.

While they watched, Roman had to say something, joking: "Look at him jazzing out, there's no one there, Gary."

He added: "I can't watch Gary Barlow."

"Why not?" his dad asked. Roman then did an absolutely spot on impression of Gary, which of course, went down a treat on Twitter.

One commented: "Roman Kemp's impression of Gary Barlow is great."

Another said: "I can't get over Roman Kemp's impression of Gary Barlow."

Maybe they redeemed themselves after that awful advert.
