A talented Milton Keynes schoolgirl is one of the stars in this year’s Marks & Spencer Christmas advert.

Ellis Restall, 12, plays the part of the big sister.

She has been a student at Linford Wood-based Arts1 School of performance since she was four years old.

“Ellis is thrilled to have been picked for the part and to have the chance to be part of such a high profile advertising campaign,” said an Arts1 spokesman.

The advert was filmed by the three times Oscar winning director Tom Hooper with credits such as The Kings Speech and the Danish Girl.
