Meerkats return in latest Compare the Market TV campaign following rumours of their demise

Compare the Market has released a new TV campaign featuring its meerkats Aleksandr and Sergei and highlighting the price comparison site’s continued meerkat toy promotion.

The advert is the first to roll out this year, aside from the Coronation Street sponsorship bumpers, featuring the meerkats, which last week sparked stories across the national media citing the company’s plans to kill them off.

The last campaign, which ran at the end of December, was the first since the meerkats were introduced not to feature them within the campaign, instead starring comedian Robert Webb, which began much speculation that the CGI critters were seen as having passed their sell by date.

This latest TV campaign, however, highlights the company’s toy giveaway, which sees each person who completes a transaction through Compare the Market, receive their own cuddly meerkat toy.

VCCP continues to be the creative agency on the campaign, with the latest work having broken at the start of the month (1 February).

They're flogging a dead meerkat here. Quit whilst you're ahead!

anything that gets that cult (with an 'n') comedian Robert Webb is a good thing though
