It's that time of year again when the UK's biggest retailers do battle to see who can come up with the best Christmas TV ad. It's a title John Lewis has held for many years, though it's increasingly seeing some stiff competition from the likes of Sainsbury's and M&S. Watch the best Christmas ads of 2017 here.
You might not want to think about Christmas until December but the Christmas ads are here in force including an M&S tie-in with Paddington and some surprisingly adorable singing Amazon boxes.
