After months of airing, the advert still has some viewers stumped.
The identity of the Kenco 2019 advert actress has been debated ever since it began airing.
Love it or hate it, it’s still gonna be on telly again and again…
We reckon most will have seen the New Kenco Duo advert more times than they’ve actually had a coffee since it surfaced back in October 2019.
The ad features a woman giving a demonstration of how to conjure up the perfect, quick coffee courtesy of Kenco. It’s a fun little bit of advertising, of which we’ve witnessed countless times now.
However, no matter how many times it’s been on, some still feel uncertain as to who the actress that features centre-stage is.
Let’s get this settled!
Kenco advert stirs debate
A number of viewers have taken to Twitter to offer their thoughts and vent their confusion.
A fair few are convinced that she is English actress and comedian Katy Brand! Check out a selection of tweets:
@KatyFBrand can you end a almost daily arguement/heated debate for me and my fiancé. Is that you in the kenco duo advert? I shan’t tell you what side who is on till hopefully you reply with a answer. Thanks

Is @KatyFBrand in the current Kenco “I’m glad you asked” advert? I can’t quite tell due to the editing

Kenco Duo advert actress (2019)
The actress who features in the 2019 Kenco advert is actually Emily Houghton.
Any Call the Midwife fans here?
Well, Emily actually starred in an episode back in 2017. She played the character of Mrs. Evans. So, to repeat, it’s definitely not Katy Brand!
The other actress alongside her is Emma Bentley. Check out a tweet from her below:
So glad I was able to reference Wallace and Gromit in this Kenco advert https://t.co/dsupW0Q9HJ
