You know it's officially Christmas when the festive ads start flowing. And while we're obsessed with John Lewis' Christmas advert for 2021, we're also loving Marks & Spencer's...

Just yesterday the supermarket teased their new advert on Instagram, asking fans to guess who the voice of Percy might be.

With big names from James Corden to Matt Lucas thrown into the mix, M&S announced it would be releasing full details on the Christmas ad today (4 November).

And you're going to love who they've got playing Percy...

In the ad, we see Percy Pig come to life for the very first time (almost 29 years after he was first created).

Voiced by Spiderman actor Tom Holland, Percy finds himself wandering around the supermarket’s Stratford, London store after a Christmas fairy, who's played by another well-known British actor, Dawn French, accidentally drops her wand onto the gift he was wrapped up inside.

The pair both roam the aisles of M&S, highlighting products from the supermarket's festive food range including everything from triple-chocolate panettone to smoked salmon and golden-blond Christmas pudding.

Director of Marketing for M&S Food, Sharry Cramond, said: "The M&S Christmas food range this year is better than ever and who better to tell customers about our delicious Christmas food range than the national treasure and much-loved M&S icon himself, Percy Pig.

“Of course, he couldn’t have just any voice and having Tom Holland give Percy Pig his first words is about as exciting as it gets. Added to that the voice of the one and only Dawn French as the Christmas fairy – it’s the stuff of Christmas dreams!”
