Spitfire Premium Ale, well-known for its sense of humour and risqué advertising campaign, will feature in Sky1’s new flagship comedy series set in a supermarket.

Trollied, starring Golden Globe nominee Jane Horrocks, is an eight-part series set in the fictional store Valco, which follows the everyday lives of its staff. Viewers can watch out for Shepherd Neame’s Spitfire Ale stocked on the supermarket’s shelves, along with the brewery’s other leading brands.

Starring alongside Jane Horrocks is Mark Addy (The Full Monty, Game of Thrones) and Jason Watkins (Being Human, Lark Rise to Candleford).

Spitfire brand manager Kate Maclean said: “Spitfire Ale’s humorous nature made it an ideal candidate for Sky1’s new comedy series, Trollied. With the show expected to be a hit, Spitfire Ale will be placed firmly on the radar of comedy fans.”

The first episode will be aired on Friday July 29 on Sky1.
