IT'S HERE! Watch the new John Lewis Christmas ad

Elton John's "Your Song" is the centrepiece of this year's John Lewis Christmas advert.

However, the public don't have to wait that long if they don't want to as the retailer has already launched the advert on Youtube and on their social media channels. That little boy just happens to be Elton John.

The clip features legendary musician Elton John and his iconic song Your Song.

The advert ends with a four-year-old Elton running down the stairs on Christmas morning and unwrapping his grandmother's gift of her piano - a scene "inspired by real events" but involving "some creativity", the department store said.

"The ad is absolutely fantastic and I've truly loved every minute of being a part of it".

Some even claimed the advert was a thinly veiled promotion for upcoming biopic Rocketman, featuring Taron Egerton as Sir Elton. A letdown, a triumph or just another way to make us buy stuff we don't need this Christmas?

Wednesday morning began quietly, but by the evening Israel had a new defense minister: Benjamin Netanyahu. So while the cease-fire holds with Gaza, Netanyahu's government may not last the night.

"This is a story that when you strip it all back, it's a story about a little boy who got a piano and how that thoughtful gift had an impact on his life".

The film, which launched in the United Kingdom today, starts out with a somewhat pensive, present day Elton John tapping a few notes on his piano. But come on. Really?

Other previous campaigns have featured the singing talents of Lily Allen, Tom Odell and Ellie Golding who covered "Your Song" in the 2010 campaign.

The department store's festive advert is arguably the most highly-anticipated of them all, and you're guaranteed to need tissues to dry those tears. "Your Song" was first released almost 50 years ago and proves to be a timeless classic in the heartwarming Christmas advert that aims to spread the message that 'Sometimes a gift isn't just a gift".

John Lewis is understood to usually spend around £7m on its Christmas campaign, including creative and media.
