Robert Webb duets with meerkat Aleksandr Orlov for new Compare the Market ad

Comedian Robert Webb is to sing in public for the first time after filming a new Compare the Market TV ad with its long-standing furry mascot, Aleksandr Orlov.

The commission sees Webb, using his Victorian alter-ego of Maurice Wigglethorpe Throom, duet with the meerkat in an effort to patch up their differences.

Debuting this evening during ITV’s Love & Marriage at 21:30 the piece will take place in the grounds of Orlov’s country estate, around a grand piano.

A long-running feud between the two main protagonists is centred on confusion between comparethemeerkat.com and comparethemarket.com, with Throom overseeing the latter and Orlov behind the former.
Together they sing a cover of Ebony & Ivory, reworked as ‘Gingery and Furry’.

Orlov commented: “Not only am I well-know television personality and bestselling author, I have decide is time to fulfill my musical ambitions. So I have make recording of famous piano duet with my whiskery comparings rival Maurice Wigglethorpe-Throom. Find out who is greater singer by watch video on T.V. from Wednesday evening. The answer should be not surprising.”
