'Weight loss' chocolate advert banned from TV

AN ADVERT suggesting that a Nestlé chocolate bar could help to control weight has been ordered off television screens.

The ad for Kit Kat showed Father Christmas walking into a house and complaining about becoming fat from eating too many mince pies.

He then looked at a Kit Kat and said: "107 calories, just the ticket" as on-screen text stated: "May aid weight control within balanced, calorie controlled diet."
