ACTOR Kris Marshall has revealed that he was not a happy BT customer – even when he famously fronted their TV adverts.

Marshall, 39, starred in 40 commercials over seven years, becoming half of one of the best-known on-screen couples.

But soon after his character Adam finally married his partner Jane in a romantic country wedding, the company decided in 2011 that the couple’s story had run its course.

Former My Family star Marshall said: “I was supposed to get complimentary broadband, but it never happened. It was all, ‘Oh yes, don’t worry, that’ll all be taken care of’, and then suddenly I got a big bill. I didn’t want to be seen as churlish so I just paid it. Although I did actually get fined by them for not paying my phone bill.”

The actor added: “It’s okay though. I’m with Sky now.”
