Can anyone provide any information on Diana Rigg’s Lux soap TV commercial seen some years ago in an edition of Washes Whiter?

I think this must be from either 1966 or 1967.

It also made me recall Patrick Macnee almost in character as Steed complete with bowler hat and umbrella doing a commercial for Colgate toothpaste around the same time.

Mike, great news!

One of Diana Rigg’s Lux soap TV commercial (1966) was published on the website www.hatads.org.uk Razz

https://www.hatads.org.uk/catalogue/record/6bbfc0dc-6df0-4754-8298-51275a78b469





I read for a long time ago somewhere that there were at least four different versions of Diana Rigg’s Lux soap TV commercial.

For example, one is version is where Diana is driving in a car.

Denis

Thanks for pointing this out. I saw one of the Diana Rigg/Lux TV commercials on the BBC's Washes Whiter years ago, although I cannot remember them from the sixties.

Likewise, I cannot remember the Patrick Macnee toothpaste TV commercials from the sixties, although people have told me he did at least one.

Getting back to Diana'a Lux connection, I'm sure that she also appeared in Lux soap advertisements in magazines.
