Isn't he the character in the TV ads?

Yup, I assume that's not the actors real name. The PlusNet PR person.

I used to think it was Jason Manford, but now I know it's Craig Murray.

His name is Craig Murry. He's from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.

Re: Joe@Plusnet

Seems reasonable I guess, PlusNet wanted a Yorkshire local for their advertising campaign who had the experience in acting.

Re: Joe@Plusnet

He's not just an actor, he's also a very good comedian. If you get the chance to see him in a live show then go, but be warned, he can get a bit 'x-rated' well a lot really. Don't take any young 'uns. Why he hasn't had more air time on tv is beyond me, think of a yorkshire version of Jim Davidson.

I think PlusNet should produce a post-watershed version of the advert.
