Meerkats Sergei and Aleksandr have landed themselves a new squeeze, and it is none other than Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman.

Kidman is taking over the reins from actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to star in the new advert for

The 40 second advert sees some fur flying as Kidman arrives at Aleksandr's house - to take his meerkat pal Sergei on a date to the movies!

Sneaky Sergei uses his Meerkat Movies 2 for 1 cinema tickets to take Kidman on the date, leaving Aleksandr outraged.

Marketing director of Mark Vile said: "Arnold Schwarzenegger was always going to be a hard act to follow but having fellow Hollywood icon Nicole Kidman part of the latest TV ad has certainly exceeded our expectations. We hope Sergei going on a date with Nicole will inspire others to take a friend or partner to the cinema this autumn with Meerkat Movies."

Viewers will see the advert for the first time on Sunday October 4 when it airs on ITV at 7:15pm.
