Late actress Audrey Hepburn has been unveiled as the new face of Galaxy, a chocolate company, and she even features in a special ad for it.

The cinematic icon passed away in 1993.

Ccomputer-generated imagery technology has been used to allow her to star in a new British TV commercial for the chocolate company, reports contactmusic.com.

"Our mother often spoke about her love of chocolate and how it lifted her spirit, so we're sure she would have been proud of her role as the face of Galaxy. The advert perfectly captures her playful spirit and we hope audiences enjoy it as much as they enjoyed her movies," said Hepburn's sons, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti.

The commercial - which will air for the first time Sunday during a break from "Mr. Selfridge" on ITV, sees Audrey sitting on a crowded bus wondering when she can enjoy her hidden bar of Galaxy.

The campaign also sees the return of Galaxy's famous tagline "Why have cotton when you can have silk".
