    The John Lewis Christmas advert has finally been released – and here it is in all its glory!

    The 2016 offering features Buster the Boxer dog – played by pooch Biff – who can’t wait to enjoy his young owner’s surprise Christmas present, a trampoline.

    His excitement – and jealousy! – mounts on Christmas Eve, when Buster sees his furry friends having a right giggle on the trampoline in the moonlight.

    Poor owner Bridget, Buster’s owner, doesn’t get a look in on Christmas morning as the Boxer races to enjoy the pressie himself – much to his delight!

    The clip ends with John Lewis’ Christmas tag line ‘Gifts that everyone will love’.

    As with previous years, the music is as much a part of the advert as the characters. This year, the advert features a cover of ‘One day I’ll fly away’ by London group Vaults.

    John Lewis is partnering with The Wildlife Trusts this year, with a donation made to the charity for every soft toy that is sold from the Buster range.

    Happy Christmas everyone!
