Waitrose came up with the idea following the success of its Hidden Orange Christmas Pudding, which resulted in bidding wars on eBay after the product sold out.

Blumenthal, who credits Willy Wonka as his fictional hero, will star in a TV ad promoting the competition, which will also offer a sixth ticket given away to the winner of an online game on the Waitrose Facebook page.

Brand: Waitrose
