Twitter reacts as Go Compare brings back in-your-face mascot Gio Compario

Go Compare has resurrected Gio Compario, its much-maligned opera singer mascot who was earlier this year ranked the most annoying UK ad mascot ever.

Compario, who was previously blown up by a bazooka in a previous ad playing upon the public's hate of the figure, has been returned in a new campaign from agencies Isobar, Carat and iProspect.

Wynne Evans, the actor who plays the mascot - an actual Welsh opera singer – confirmed the return.

Social media users were quick to share their dread at the news.

Gio returned in a mock live gig ad during a break in ITV’s Surprise Surprise on Sunday evening.

Brace yourselves, there is more to come from Mr Compario.
