Five-year-old twins to star in TV Easter Egg ad
CHEEKY twins Alfie and Conrad Beech are starring in a supermarket's Easter advertising campaign.
The identical five-year-old brothers were selected from hundreds of children to be the faces of Aldi's television commercial to promote its range of Easter eggs.
They first appeared in the ad on Thursday and it will be screened for the next four weeks.
Mum Jayne Beech admits she was surprised her sons successfully made it through the auditions.

The 32-year-old, of Gravelly Bank, Lightwood, said: "I'm so proud of the boys. They've never done drama classes. They were selected because of their cheeky outgoing personalities."
Jayne signed up the twins and three-year-old daughter Hetty Primrose to Hanley-based modelling and acting agency MIM last year.
She said: "I always dress my kids to complement each other and people come up to me and say they should be modelling clothes.
"That's why I decided to sign them up, I didn't think they would be on TV so quickly."
Jayne took Alfie and Conrad, above from left, to the audition in Manchester on January 27 after seeing the brief asking for 'cheeky chappy' siblings aged four to seven.
They made it through to the short-list of 20 youngsters before being asked to read from a script of an old Aldi commercial. Several pairs of siblings recorded a version but Alfie and Conrad's was chosen to air.
Jayne said: "They weren't nervous, they just get on with it.
"They just read the script and messed around a bit like they normally do. It only took about five minutes."
The boys watched the advert online when they got home from Meir Heath Primary School yesterday.
Jayne added: "They were really excited because their friends kept coming up to them and saying they'd seen them on TV."
Conrad said: "It was really fun to do and it's funny to watch us on TV."
Alfie added: "I'm very glad we did it."
The boys are now taking part in monthly drama classes at MIM.
Amelia Cope, owner of MIM, said the twins had secured the TV advert because of their confidence.
She said: "They are lovely lads. They did really well to get through so quickly, having only done one audition.
"They were very confident and natural which is exactly what Aldi was looking for."
