Simon Cowell gives special shout out to Carole Evans of M&S Swansea on ITV

Saturday evening’s episode of Britain’s Got Talent on ITV saw M&S Swansea colleague Carole Evans receive a very special shout out from none other than Simon Cowell, to recognise her incredible hard work to help feed the nation.

Carole is part of the M&S Swansea team and was recognized by her colleagues for supporting the M&S Mumbles store with an incredibly positive and resilient attitude. Described as pleasant and cheerful to all colleagues and customers, her colleagues at M&S Mumbles say she has instantly fit in to positively impact her colleagues and customers.

During the broadcast, Simon Cowell said: “I’m thanking Carole Evans from M&S Swansea who is currently helping the Mumbles store and is making a positive impact on all her new customers. Thanks Carole!”

M&S Swansea colleague, Carole Evans, commented on the recognition: “I feel honoured and humbled by it all. I was only being myself! I was both shocked and surprised as I sat down to watch BGT Saturday night. It’s not often you get your name mentioned on TV, especially by Simon Cowell. It is great to be appreciated in the workplace and Marks and Spencer is a business that I am proud to work for. It is so important to be kind to one and another. I am glad that I can do that for people, adding a smile and a laugh can go a long way, especially in these times. My friend and family are so proud, as am I.”

As part of the partnership, each Saturday night ahead of the show Simon Cowell will give a shout out on ITV to recognise an M&S colleague who has gone above and beyond in feeding the nation.
