The Two Ronnie’s Spoof Hovis AdvertThe memorable 1973 Hovis advert made such an impression on the British public that five years later, it was recreated by British comedy legends ‘The Two Ronnies’. Their spoof advert sees not a boy on a bike this time, but an old man (Ronnie Barker) walking up Gold Hill carrying a loaf of bread.18 years after the last episode of The Two Ronnies was shown, the comedy duo returned to television in 2004 with their nostaglic show ‘The Two Ronnies Sketchbook’. The show aired on BBC1 and included some of their classic and most memorable sketches - their spoof Hovis advert being one of them. Ronnie Corbett fondly recalled after the sketch was shown that ‘We spent a wonderful two days in Dorset filming that’ although he himself did not feature in it.
