Lewis Capaldi has fans in stitches after 'role' in John Lewis Christmas advert


The nation has been in tears after the release of the much-anticipated release of John Lewis’ 2020 Christmas TV advert.

But after Scots singer Lewis Capaldi’s social media post, it’s most likely to be tears of laughter for some.

The new commercial features an overwhelming theme of love and small acts of kindness to reflect the mood of the nation following the past few few months.

The ‘Give A Little Love’ campaign honours local communities around the country for their response to the coronavirus pandemic and caring for each other.




It begins with a young boy looking longingly at his beloved football which has become stuck in a tree before being rescued by a young girl and her umbrella.

The ‘random act of kindness’ then sparks a chain of events which see people from across all age ranges and ethnicities helping each other out.




The advert ends with the message ‘Give A Little Love’ written in the sky with smoke from a plane resembling a World War II spitfire, in a homage to Captain Tom Moore.

But it’s a scene near the finale featuring an animated character who bears a striking resemblance to Bathgate-born Lewis that caught the Someone You Loved hitmaker’s eye.

And he’s hilariously posted a message to fans saying: “So pleased to have been a part of the new John Lewis Christmas advert.”

Lewis is famous for his self-deprecating sense of humour so his latest gag comes as no surprise.

It’s a bit of light-hearted relief from the raft of emotional Christmas commercials we’re all set to be bombarded with as the festive season draws ever near.

And it’s a relief to see the star is feeling a bit better after the loss of beloved dog Paddy recently.

Lewis confirmed the 16-year-old pooch had passed away as he shared a photo on Instagram.

Alongside the snap, 24-year-old Lewis wrote: “Rest in peace to the major”.

Paddy was a firm fixture on the musician’s social media feed, with the adorable pet featuring in a number of the star’s photos and videos.
