Christmas is Coming and so is the John Lewis advert

Christmas is coming and so is the John Lewis advert.

Although Christmas is still 52 days away, we know Christmas is on its way when John Lewis unveils an advert that has everyone filled with festive cheer.

The 2015 John Lewis Christmas ad is expected to debut online at 8am on Friday, November 6, according to The Telegraph – so brace yourselves for the grand unveiling.

The advert itself is still under lock and key for now, but it will no doubt include some sort of cute and fluffy message and a soppy cover version of a much-loved tune, usually an indie number of some sort.

In recent years we’ve had Ellie Goulding cover Elton John’s ‘Your Song’, Lily Allen has done her take on Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ and Tom Odell did a stripped back John Lewis-ified version of ‘Real Love’ by The Beatles for last year’s Monty the Penguin campaign.

John Lewis spent a whopping £7 million on last year’s ad – and for good reason, as shoppers are expected to spend around £2.3 billion in West End stores alone this festive season.
