Sadly it is not the actual Mr T but a very convincing impersonator who appears in Grey’s of Ely’s video, which got nearly 1,000 hits in 24 hours.

Richard Grey, managing director, said: “We are aware social media is ramping up and we decided it would be nice to do something tongue in check.

“The idea came up do use someone famous and Mr T was mentioned because he spans several generations.

“We hired an impersonator, wrote a script and filmed the video within a week.
