With Christmas exactly 2 months away many of us will be keeping a sharp eye for the John Lewis Christmas ad to hit our TV screens. It's the Christmas advert in the UK that signals the start of the Christmas season for many and it's usually the most high production advert of the year. 

Last year (in 2021) the John Lewis Christmas advert aired on the same day as the Pride Of Britain Awards which was November 4th. This year the Pride Of Britain Awards is earlier on Thursday 27th October. Could we possibly be seeing the Christmas ad appearing before Halloween?

When will the John Lewis 2022 Christmas ad come out?

Nobody knows for sure as this is something John Lewis keep very tight-lipped, however, in the past they have released it in early November, usually between the 7th and 15th. There's a good chance it could be even earlier this year with the Pride Of Britain Awards show being aired on the 27th October. The other possibility would be the first episode of 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' which is scheduled to start on November 6th.

What song will be used for the 2022 John Lewis Christmas ad?

This is something kept very quiet and incredibly difficult to guess, but in they're usual style they're likely to use a stipped back or acoustic version of a classic. Singers featured in the past include Sir Elton John, Ellie Goulding, Lily Allen, Tom Odell, Gabrielle Aplin and Lola Young.
