Simon Daglish, Director of Multi-Platforms & Partnerships, ITV says, "We are really excited that this partnership built with Marks and Spencer to support their 'Do Your Thing' campaign has resulted in unprecedented levels of campaign engagement. It is a clear demonstration of the power of collaboration between ITV and its customers which leads to great results".
