When is the John Lewis Christmas advert 2022 likely to be released? | The Sun

JOHN Lewis has yet to reveal when its iconic Christmas advert will be out this year.

But when is it likely to appear? We take a look as the Christmas countdown gets underway.

From excitable Edgar the dragon to Monty the penguin, there's been a range of inventive adverts throughout the years.

Last year it was released earlier than ever – as it normally comes out in the second week of November – hitting screens on November 4 instead.

It was called The Unexpected Guest, and it featured a teenage boy who meets an alien named Skye who has crash landed on earth.

In comparison, in 2020, the advert first aired on Friday, November 13.

What about other Christmas adverts?

Of course, John Lewis isn't the only retailer that releases festive adverts every year.

Online retailer Very has already released the first Christmas ad of the year on October 12 – you can watch it here.

Last year, Asda released its Christmas advert on November 4, featuring a family enter an Asda store before being transported through a series of traditional Christmas events.

It was released the same day as the John Lewis ad for that year.

In 2020, Asda's came out on November 10. It followed a real-life family getting ready for the festive season by decorating their house and stocking up for Christmas Day.

Marks & Spencer also releases an advert yearly, with last year's landing on November 4 also.

The Christmas clip, which starred Dawn French and Tom Holland, sawPercy Pig come to life and explore the treats on offer in an M&S food hall.

The year before, its advert came out on November 6 followed by a string of others, involving the voices of ten world-famous actors including Tom Hardy, Dame Helen Mirren and Eddie Redmayne.
