image for Stephen Fry to sell Crisp'n'Dry
Fry's pension is yellow and smooth

TV GIANT Stephen Fry has been announced as the new face of Crisp'n'Dry.

Fry, 59, described the venture as a 'bit of fun' and claimed to have been a lifelong admirer.

He remarked: "I'm a massive fan of Mr Potato and one of the nicest ways to eat one is to fry it. Crisp'n'Dry fries beautifully. I've always used it.

"In fact when I was ill I used to drink it. I found it to be most soothing, so I'm thrilled to be able to spread the word."

Gavin Turtle, UK Head of Marketing added: "We're delighted that he's on board. Crisp'n'Dry, like Stephen, is yellow and smooth so it's a perfect partnership."

Despite the mutual appreciation, it was a slightly different tone on Fry's Twitter page.

He wrote: "I only took it to pay the bills. Plus they're sending me litres of the stuff. I suppose I'll sign the bottles then flog them all on ebay.
