Former Eastenders star Sean Williamson also appears in the sketch released today.

The advert’s narrative is based on model Abbey Clancy reflecting on her life without her husband, ex-Liverpool star Peter Crouch, as she is captured on camera cuddling with a new man.

Luckily for the 6ft 2in former England star, the scenario is based on fiction Paddy Power games for their latest TV commercial “Life with more chances”.

The new advert raises a lot of questions: What if the Brexit referendum never happened? What if VAR had never been introduced? What if Abbey was Britain’s favorite soap star? And what if Milton Keynes wasn’t like that…Milton Keynes?

Crouch is seen watching his real wife Abbey cuddle with none other than ex-soap star Williamson.

The bookmaker’s tongue-in-cheek advertising focuses on key moments that can change your life.

Before the TV commercial hits screens, Peter admits it was strange to think about whether it actually happened.

Peter Crouch, the star of Paddy Power‘s new’Live with more opportunitiesThe TV advert said: “See Abbey cuddled with ‘Barry'” [Shaun Williamson] was one of the strangest experiences of my life.

“I stood there and thought to myself: What if this actually happened?!”

The former striker says the detail shown during the filming of the commercial was second to none

Crouch added: “Paddy Power’s attention to detail was epic. The nightclub scene represented the moment we first met in the vampire room at the Mosquito nightclub in Liverpool.”

But in a new version of the story, Abbey delivers a fatal blow to her real-life husband in the TV commercial.

During the comical addition, Abbey tells Williamson: “It’s a bit long, isn’t it? No thanks!”

Before she gets back to the more important business, dancing with her mates.

Abbey returns to the present and appears relieved as she hugs her husband’s chest on the sofa.

However, as the camera pans, his identity is revealed to be Williamson, looking appropriately smug as he hugs Abbey tighter.

Crouch says the ad touched him because it accurately portrayed him in his younger years:

He added: “The worst thing about this ad is that it is so close to reality. I had this great blonde hair, extremely baggy jeans, terrible shirt and terrible shoes.

“But I didn’t get involved in it from the start. It was Abbey who came to me first, we started chatting and it went from there. I want this on the record.”

As for Abbey, she kindly said that she would marry her real husband again.

She said: “I would marry Peter again.

“We renewed our vows last Christmas in the Maldives with our family and closest friends.

“But if I could go back to 20 years ago, I would absolutely teach him how to cook and clean a little better!”

Former Eastender Williamson said he really enjoyed filming the advert with the couple and made a warm gesture to the couple.

He said: “I loved working with Peter and Abbey. They are such down-to-earth, nice people.
