Kathy Crump and Letitia Darko-Sarkwa, who work at Wilko on the Broadway, played the role of the team members serving pirates at the tills.

The duo have worked at the Stratford store since it opened in 2001.

Store manager Mohammed Sethi said: “I couldn’t be more proud of Letitia and Kathy for their performance in the advert.

“They are the perfect people to don the Wilko uniform and represent the company on TV, as they have been such an important part of our store from the very beginning.

“It was an unusual, but very exciting experience for both of them.

“Who knows, we might get customers coming in for autographs!”

The advert, which was filmed in the chain’s Bexleyheath branch, was broadcast for the first time during an episode of Coronation Street.
