Rugby star and Celebrity Masterchef winner, Phil Vickery MBE, has been announced as a new brand ambassador for SsangYong Motors UK.

Phil, was a member of England's World Cup winning squad in 2003, playing in all seven matches in the tournament, and is a former England captain.

Vickery, who has 73 caps for the national side and made 5 Lions appearances, said: “I’m very proud to become an ambassador for SsangYong Motors UK and look forward to working with the team going forward. It’s a really exciting time for the brand, the product is very, very good but the marque is relatively unknown in the UK, so we have great plans to change that.”

Phil, 42, will drive the firm’s flagship Rexton, which delivers an incomparable SUV package, offering strength, reliability and versatility. The award-winning Rexton[1] is the perfect companion and is as happy working on a farm, or climbing a mountain, as it is cruising along a motorway.

Nick Laird, managing director of SsangYong Motors UK, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for us as we engage in our big brand awareness campaign – “Straight Talking”. Having Phil on board as a brand ambassador serves to strengthen our awareness further and we are delighted he is representing us. He is very down-to-earth and has a straight-talking approach – very similar to our own brand personality. His passions and the activities in which he engages are borne from real people in the real world. This is a great match and we are looking forward to developing our partnership moving forwards with Phil.”
