Do YOU know the next Milk Tray Man? Cadbury is on the hunt

The Milk Tray Man is retiring… but he's on the search for a replacement.

If you know a man who likes jumping out of moving trains, who enjoys gift-giving and who looks good in a black polo neck, this could be the job for him.

The chocolate-bearing hero was last seen on our screens in 2002, and he was known for going to daring extremes all for the sake of his lady love's happiness.

But the revamped Milk Tray man won't just be asked to act like the next James Bond – he'll need to be courteous and sweet to boot.

"The key point is the new Milk Tray man won’t be chosen just for his derring-do, diving off cliffs into shark-infested waters," explains Cadbury spokesman Tony Bilsborough.

"It will be as much about traits such as thoughtfulness."

The perfect boyfriend, really.

In a new ad, set to debut on ITV tonight, former Milk Tray Man James Coombes bids us farewell before jumping out the window (standard), leaving the office free for his descendant.

Know someone who's interested?

As long as they are over 18, they can apply or nominate someone else on the New Milk Tray Man website here before the end of November 2015.
