Aldi has released not one, but TWO Christmas adverts in 2020. And, of course, Kevin The Carrot is the star.

Earlier this week, there was a teaser advert featuring Kevin and his turkey pal flying through the air; Top Gun style. It was all looking pretty cool until Turkey accidentally launched Kevin into the sky via his ejector seat. Yeah, good one, Turkey...

Finding himself left out in the cold while his family waits for him to return home for a Christmas feast, Kevin finds solace in a sweet hedgehog who wakes up early from hibernation to assist him on his mission home. But, as you can imagine, riding a hedgehog can be a little uncomfortable.

Lucky for Kevin, he soon bumps into Father Christmas, who gets him wrapped up all snuggly for his E.T.-esque trip home. And if you think Santa's voice sounds familiar, then you're right. Aldi's Father Christmas is played by none other than Jim Broadbent, who you may know best for playing Bridget Jones's dad or as Professor Horace Slughorn in the Harry Potter films.

Before you panic, Kevin makes it home in time for dinner, and all is right in the world again.

Kevin has appeared in the last few Aldi Christmas adverts. Last year, he starred in the Peaky Leafy Blinders/The Greatest Showman-themed advert, in which he did a rendition of Robbie Williams' Let Me Entertain You. And in 2018, he was behind the wheel of a truck that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Coca-Cola truck.
