Model Nell McAndrew today joined England 1966 World Cup hero Gordon Banks to show off Butlins' new Redcoat uniforms. The pair posed for pictures in the London sunshine as the holiday company displayed two new uniforms - one formal and one casual. The formal uniform comprises the famous Redcoat jacket, which has been re-tailored and is now accompanied by black trousers with matching red stitching or a shorter black skirt. Under the jacket, the Redcoats will wear a plain skinny-fit white T-shirt with the Butlins logo.

The casual outfit consists of a red overcoat and matching combat trousers. A white and red lightweight football T-shirt has also been designed. The new look is designed to reflect the evolving role of the Redcoats who today are trained as football coaches, circus entertainers, art teachers and even pottery instructors.

Butlins shunned famous fashion designers who had been used in the past and instead invited fashion students across the UK to design the new uniforms. Final selection was made by the British Fashion Council and the Redcoats.
