A SCHOOLGIRL from Cirencester has been spotted in a brand-new McDonald's advert. 

Christmas came early for Year 4 Cirencester Primary School pupil Destiny Ezewudo-Broadbridge who was thrilled when she discovered she had been chosen to feature in McDonald's 2023 Christmas advert. 

Destiny, aged eight, features in the advert dressed in a woolly sheep costume doing the robot dance in a school's nativity play.

Her family found out about this opportunity through her agent Michelle from Acting Mechanics Management.

She was the only child from the South West to be picked to take part in the Christmas advert after a robust selection process which involved virtual interviews. 

Filming for the advert took place across three locations in London - Peckham Liberal Club, Surrey Street in Croydon and at the McDonald’s in Southall on September 19, 21 and 22.

Destiny's family excitedly watched the premiere of the advert for the first time at the weekend.

Dad Micheal Ezewudo said: "Destiny has always enjoyed making videos of her self but was quite shy as a little girl in the beginning.

"This was the first advert she has ever been apart of and it was a phenomenal experience for her.

"Watching the advert with our family for the first time was magical.

"I bet families across the UK, Venice, Montego Bay, Atlanta, Australia, Norway and Nigeria were shell-shocked to see their own family members on national TV for the first time. 

"I hope this motivates other children to think outside the box in whatever they do."

Destiny has told her parents she wishes to put some of the money she made from the advert towards decorating the Rainbow Room at her school.
