A Music Megastar Will Appear In This Year’s John Lewis Christmas Ad

James Fenton

With just over 100 days until Christmas, you might forgive us for posting a festive-related article. No? Fair enough.

We’re gonna do it anyway because this yuletide news is fairly exciting. In recent years, the release of the John Lewis Christmas ad has marked the start of the festive season for many people and we now know who is going to feature in the 2018 version.

According to the Daily Mail, music megastar Elton John has signed up to appear in the ad and not only that, his hit tune Your Song will provide the soundtrack. It’s thought that a younger version of Elton will be seen opening presents at the beginning of the ad before the fully-grown version brings us the climax from his piano seat.

Now that you’ve heard the good news, here’s something to that could annoy you somewhat. The publication adds that Elton will pocket a whopping £5 million for his troubles. Not bad work if you can get it.

Will 2018’s version be an improvement on last year’s (below)? Only time will tell.
