Brenda and Audrey were the mascots of kitchen roll brand Bounty/Plenty from 2003-Present. They were part of the Strong Housewives campaign launched in October 2001. (Previously, the housewives were named Maureen, Barbara, Susan and Janet.)
They are two middle-aged, large, stubby men wearing dresses and wigs, playing two housewives. The duo would perform household tasks that require a paper towel and compare them to other products. Whilst Brenda would use Bounty/Plenty, Audrey would end up using the bad product, which would tend to fall apart against the ultra strength of the main product and thus lose the challenge. (Brenda was played by Ian Good whilst Audrey was played by Calum MacPherson.)
In one commercial, the ladies were superimposed into the food fight scene of British comedy film Carry On Loving. Another was a take on dance contest show Strictly Come Dancing (featuring Terry Wogan as the voiceover). Another commercial was a spoof on 1999 blockbuster movie The Matrix.
Come 2010, the couple were dropped from the adverts and replaced by Latino cleaning superhero Juan Sheet.
