Robert Cohen, the co-owner of Cohens Jewellers - previously D&M Cohen - said: “We were honoured to be chosen by AJ to feature in the advert, especially as this year we celebrate fifty years since my father and grandfather opened the shop in Temple Fortune.

“Filming this advert created so much excitement on the high street – that’s a huge bonus to us, as the exposure hopefully encourages people to shop locally with businesses like ours.”

Last week, the Ham&High launched its annual Shop Local campaign which is encouraging people to support independent traders in their area ahead of Christmas.
