Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson described the campaign as "a powerful call to action that appeals to those seeking to make a difference as part of an innovative and inclusive team".

According to the British Armed Forces, the Army had 9,700 applications in the first three weeks of January — a five-year high — compared to 5,437 the previous year.

The surge in the number of recruits comes amid a controversial attempt to appeal to the younger generation.

Old-style posters released in January urged "snowflakes", selfie addicts, class clowns, phone zombies and "me, me, millennials" to join the ranks of the British Army. The posters were a part of a £1.5million campaign mainly aimed at those aged 16-25.
