Ice cream brand Cornetto explores an unlikely pairing between a lines umpire and a tennis star in a sweet advert.

The Cupidity ad, titled ’40 Love’, features four acts exploring a blossoming relationship between a world-famous tennis star and the umpire.

As well as the touching love story, and the trials and tribulations therein, the ad also features a cameo by singer Lily Allen.

The description on the ad reads: “Game, set and it’s a match made in heaven when a young girl  finds herself as an accidental target for love. Her relationship  with a tennis pro doesn’t start off well but will our Cupid, Lily Allen help to bring them together?”
