It is a look back at Sir Elton John's life & career

This is often seen as the start of Christmas for some of us and now the John Lewis Christmas advert is FINALLY here.

The Boy and the Piano stars Sir Elton John - with a look back at the singer's life and career.

It starts with Sir Elton sitting and playing the piano, all to the backing track of his hit Your Song.

Posting the video on its website just after 6.30am on Thursday, John Lewis said it is all about a "special gift".

"This year’s story is about the power of a gift. And how that gift inspired, changed and influenced the course of a little boy’s life. That little boy just happens to be Elton John.

"The film begins in present day and works backwards chronologically through Elton’s life right until the moment on Christmas morning when he received the special gift that changed his life".
