Our John Lewis Christmas quiz looks back at the retailer’s adverts from the past eight years

From snowmen to monsters to space; what’s in the John Lewis Christmas advert has become something of a national obsession.

We still don’t know exactly when this year’s John Lewis Christmas advert will be released.

And earlier this month, Radio X DJ Chris Moyles admitted he was behind a fake John Lewis teaser trailer.

But it could the real advert could be out any day now based on when previous years’ adverts were launched.

It’s hotly tipped that this year’s John Lewis Christmas advert will star singer and songwriter Sir Elton John.

This year's Christmas adverts so far

BELOW is a list of Christmas adverts that have been released already:

  • Aldi: The retailer brings back Kevin the Carrot this year, but will he survive the festive adventure?
  • Argos: The advert features a creepy fool but it could ruin the big day for the little ones
  • Asda: This year’s ad features a cannon-firing Santa, yetis and a giant inflatable snowman
  • Boots: The pharmacy chain’s tearjerking ad tells the story of a relationship between a mum and her daughter
  • Heathrow: The airport’s heartwarming Christmas ad sees two bears make it home to see the family in time for Christmas
  • Lidl: The bargain chain has launched three Christmas ads this year – but do you think they’re funny?
  • Sainsbury’s: It features little girl Tia and it could bring a tear to your eye
  • Tesco: The ad reveals very different ways families celebrate Christmas
  • Waitrose: The posh supermarket’s festive campaign centres round its food being “too good to wait”

Only today, shop signs changed to just ‘John’, while the Mail on Sunday reported that this year’s advert will see the star playing the piano at the climax of the advert, with his 1970 hit ‘Your song’ as the soundtrack.
