Jimmy’s steak for two
You might recognise ‘Jimmy’ from our advert. In our story, like so many teenagers, he’s had to grow up a lot since his parents divorced. Living with his dad has meant he’s had to take on new responsibilities, such as learning to cook. But it turns out it’s something he really loves to do, so, when his dad's got a date, to help him out, Jimmy's the one who rustles up a romantic meal for two - leaving Dad to pour the wine and take all the credit for the cooking!
