Donna Herron, head of social media Extreme, which employs 37 people, said: “It’s been an incredible year with this account and it’s only the beginning – we can’t wait to do more for 2020, especially using our new bespoke motion studio!”

David Wilkinson, commercial director for TSC, the company behind Glorious!, said: “The team at Extreme have changed the perception of the Glorious brand, which has really helped our trade relationships and grow our customer base.”
