Watch: The best Christmas adverts of 2017

From a romantic carrot to adorable Paddington, these ads are getting us in the mood for the festive season

If you’re ready to give in to the fact that Christmas is coming, here’s a little dose of loveliness to get you up to speed. Every year the big department stores and supermarkets spend millions on their ad campaigns and these ones feature lots of heart-warming messages and adorable characters.

Paddington the Bear for Marks & Spencer

The lovable bear unwittingly stops a robber from ruining Christmas.

John Lewis and Moz the Monster

A little boy discovers a fuzzy monster under his bed and lots of fun ensues (but we’re not sure we love Moz the Monster as much as 2014's Monty the Penguin).

A modern Cinderella story for Debenhams

A fairy-tale love story narrated by Ewan McGregor in a minute and a half, lovely.

Kevin the Carrot is back for Aldi

But this time the adorable little carrot is looking for love.

And if that’s not enough festive cheer for you, check out Ed Sheeran’s new video for Perfect which is set in a ski resort and is sufficiently snowy and sweet:
