Egg Marketing Board: Omelettes: Patricia Hayes

A great big meal for four at eight-pence a nob? What a cracking tip!

Advert 1966


You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs, and you can’t run a marketing board without making ads. Combine the two, add a dash of sitcom staple Patricia Hayes, and volia! Hayes appeared in Hancock’s Half Hour (1956-1960) as Mrs Cravatte the maid, and they both appeared in a number of Egg Marketing Board ads in similar roles.
