COMMUTERS in MediaCityUK were treated to a surprise tiger spotting today when they were greeted by none other than Kelloggs' Tony the Tiger.

The famous mascot was spied meeting commuters, stopping for selfies, and spreading cheer at MediaCity and Cornbrook stations, to mark the cereal giant's move to MediaCityUK.

Kelloggs also teamed up with TfGM, taking over Metrolink travel announcements.

The announcements had been recorded last week when actor Tom Clarke Hill, the voice of Tony the Tiger, came to Transport for Greater Manchester's Trafford depot.

Mr Clarke Hill, said: "I’ve been the voice of Tony the Tiger for nearly 20 years.

"I used to watch the Kellogg’s Frosties adverts when I was a kid and mimic the voice, over time practise makes perfect.

"It has been really exciting to be involved in this latest project, it is has been really fun to be involved in the next chapter of the company – the move to MediaCity, it’s going to be grrrreat!"

Passengers were able to keep track of and share their tiger spottings using the hashtags #TonytakeoverofTfGM and #KelloggsMediaCity.

TfGM’s Head of Metrolink, Danny Vaughan, said: "We are delighted to be working with Kellogg’s to promote their move to MediaCityUK.

"It was brilliant to see Tony’s takeover of the MediaCityUK stop and hear him welcoming our customers with his distinctive voice."

Kelloggs is relocating 420 of its office staff from the Manchester Old Trafford HQ where it has been for almost 30 years, into a new headquarters in MediaCity's Orange Tower - sharing the building with Salford University and ITV.
