Reggae singer Shaggy is set to be the new face of Malibu.

It is expected the star will appear in ads for the coconut-flavoured rum next year, under the long-running "Seriously Easy" campaign.

A spokesman for Allied Domecq, Malibu's owner, said Shaggy was a "perfect fit" for the brand.

Shaggy's role will be discussed by the company's new independent advertising review board.

Foster's ad tamed Foster's has been banned from screening an ad, depicting a pelican biting off the head of a reporter, before 7.30pm.

The Independent Television Commission upheld 15 complaints against the commercial, ruling it was unsuitable for viewing by children.

The ITC earlier dismissed objections against another ad in the Don't lose your head campaign, showing a bungee jumper losing his head to a crocodile.

Feelfine's director Lynne Bowen said: "Promotion of Feelfine in clubs will be twofold: as a hangover relief and as a drink to rehydrate the body."
