The boy who starred in Cadbury's eyebrow advert has recreated the iconic 'wiggle' - 15 years later.

Bradley Ford was aged 11 when he starred in the chocolate giant's ad, now 26, he has revealed how he got to feature - and has reprised the role on TikTok.

The one-minute advert saw Bradley and co-star Georgia Wake frantically wiggling their eyebrows to the track Don't Stop the Rock in front of a grey background.

The advert subsequently became one of the most popular adverts in the UK, racking up 4M YouTube views in its first three weeks, eclipsing that of the chocolate firm's previous successful advert - which saw a gorilla playing the drums to Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight.

Thanks to the advert's popularity, Bradley revealed that people would stop and ask him if he was the "eyebrow kid" in the months following.

He then went on to star in small roles in Doctor Who, Law And Order: UK, and Gulliver's Travels with Jack Black.

And more recently, he posted a TikTok recreating his side of the popular video 15 years later - which has racked up more than 2m views.

Boy from the Cadbury eyebrow advert recreated it - 15 years on

Bradley, now a video editor and painter and decorator from Chelsea, west London, said: "I went to a private theatre school when I was younger from about eight years old.

"They had their own agency and I was sent to loads of auditions. I knew it was for Cadbury but didn't know what I was doing.

"They just said 'wiggle your eyebrows for the camera' - and that was it!

"Prior to the advert I didn't know I'd be moving my eyebrows, so I didn't know I had an eyebrow talent and it was obviously good enough as I went to four recalls!

"Before I knew it, I had landed the role.

"We spent a few days before filming trying to get the certain look to look like school kids - I was only 11 at the time so it was a great opportunity for me.

"At the beginning, they told us to wiggle our eyebrows to the beat of the music. 

"They had points to look at for when we had to turn our heads, but towards the end our faces were completely spasming as they told us to go for it!"

Despite his clear talent for eyebrow wiggling, Bradley refused to be drawn on whether any editing enhancement was done.

"I can't spill the beans on if it was edited or not - it's magic", he joked.

After filming, Bradley was given a box of Cadbury goodies and a plush toy gorilla from the previous advert. 

He then eagerly awaited the launch and said the first time seeing it was "surreal."

He said: "They did send me a care package of chocolate goodies and treats just under half a metre in length - every kid's dream to be honest!

"They gave me a gorilla toy from that advert too. If I remember correctly, I knew it was going to be released during a Big Brother ad break and we sat down and waited.

"I always find when I watch myself back that I cringe out but I've learned to adapt to it!  It was surreal though. Loads of people were seeing it. It was bizarre.

"Then I started to get noticed by random people. People would ask if I was the kid from the advert - not anymore!"

Bradley said his friends still "embarrass" him and call him "the Cadbury kid".

He said: "I don't typically bring it up but my friends always embarrass me! It was an advert in 2009.

"I actually met my girlfriend, Shannon, through a mutual friend and he ended up spilling the beans to her. 

"She didn't think much of it at the time but now she finds it bizarre!"

Bradley went viral again this week when he recreated the iconic advert on TikTok eyebrow for eyebrow - and says he would love to recreate it with Georgia too.

He added: "I'm still in contact with the girl in the video. We don't message that much but we have each other's socials.

"I'd love to get back together and redo the ad - maybe Cadbury should do a Christmas special!"
