A FATHER of two from Godmanchester has voiced a new advert for McCoys Crisps. Anthony Richardson, 43, of Fox Grove is a well-established voice over artist with credits ranging from Pepsi to Microsoft.

McCoys Crisps has have employed him for its new website campaign.

Mr Richardson said: "Producing the voice files for the McCoy's Man Crisps website campaign was great fun. The initial brief was to sound a bit like a friendly Phil Mitchell from EastEnders."

Sound clips that Mr Richardson provided for the company include 'Steady on mate' and 'Good to have you onboard'.

He added: "I was delighted with the first set of audio files. Alas, I actually sounded too macho and we had to go back to the drawing board. After a couple more recordings, it was decided that the manliness should be toned-down a bit."

Earlier this year, Mr Richardson voiced the introduction to Bill Gates farewell conference.
