The word va-va-voom has made it into the dictionary!

The word has become famous in the Renault TV commercial where footballer Thierry Henry is trying to sum up the meaning of the word.

The Concise Oxford Dictionary could help him with the answer as it's been included in the latest edition that was published on Thursday.

The explanation of va-va-voom is: "The quality of being exciting, vigorous, or attractive".

Possibly dates backs to the 1950s. A phrase made famous by French footballer Thierry Henry meaning lively or passionate. Used by him in Renault Clio advertisements and subsequently added to the Oxford English Dictionary.
