Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

It’s officially Christmas.....well not really, but the John Lewis Christmas Advert has finally been released! If you remember last year’s tale of the Bear and the Hare then you’ll be very pleased with this year’s Monty the Penguin. It follows the story of Sam a little boy whose friend is a Penguin who wants to fall in love. Tom Odell has recorded a cover of ‘Real love’ by John Lennon and I won’t spoil the ending, but Simon did get teary eyed. It’s going to be having its official first play on TV during Gogglebox tomorrow night, but if you can’t wait that long then head to our Facebook and Twitter pages where we’ve posted the video.

Speaking of adverts, all morning we’ve been asking you what your favourite and most memorable adverts are. I can remember a Maltesers advert from when I was little where it’s set in a 50’s diner and a man and woman dance to ‘Dream Lover’ by Bobby Darin. I managed to find it online and it was released in 1989.....I was only 2, yet I still remember it! Some funny ones people remembered were the Aldi advert with the old lady who doesn’t like tea but likes to drink gin and of course all the Irn Bru adverts, especially where everyone gets called Fanny.

Tune in tomorrow for Free Fuel Friday and also your last chance to win tickets to see this year’s Christmas Panto at the Empire. I will be whistling my final song of the week, and I think this will be a tough one?!
