John Lewis Christmas advert arrives, we get all emosh at the snowman

The John Lewis Christmas ad is always guaranteed to make us get prickly eyes.

The new John Lewis Christmas ad has arrived!

And this year's offering is no different - after we all admitted to sniffling at our desks when it was officially unveiled online this morning.

The one-and-a-half minute clip entitled 'The Journey' focuses on an adorable snowman (reminding us lots of our childhood spent watching The Snowman) who goes on a mission to find the best Christmas present.

And in true John Lewis ad style, it keeps us gripped right until the very end as he ventures through a dimly lit forest, a busy motorway and a bustling shopping street on his adventure.

The reason he's gone on the journey is kept hidden until the very end - and that's when the blubbing really begins.

The soundtrack is just as moving as ever - with a cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's 'Power of Love' sung by Gabrielle Aplin.

The 20 year-old singer, who's signed to Parlophone Records, as already been a huge hit on Youtube and with her debut album set for release in 2013, we predict mega things for her.

And of course there's a slogan - this year it's 'Give A Little More Love This Christmas'.

The ad will be aired for the first time during tonight during 'Derren Brown: Fear and Faith' on Channel 4 tonight.
