John Lewis has become synonymous with Christmas adverts, guaranteed to have us balling into a tin of Roses before breakfast or when we catch the ad between soaps. The switch might be a reference to the supposed role for Elton John in the retailer's forthcoming Christmas ad.

Rumours around the festive campaign are rife, with Radio X presenter Chris Moyles last week creating a spoof ad featuring the John song Rocket Man.

The first three quarters of the ad are pretty baffling, as you wonder why Elton John's life story has anything whatsoever to do with Christmas, and whether the whole thing is just a cynical ploy to get everyone hyped for his upcoming film, Rocketman.

Sir Elton John is the star of this year's John Lewis Christmas advert, but the reaction to it on social media has been decidedly mixed.

Fans of the new John Lewis ad included former MP and Strictly Come Dancing star Ed Balls, who said it was "totally brilliant", and TV presenter Susanna Reid who responded: "Absolutely love it".

With eyes on prize, Butler arrives, shares Sixers' vision
The likelihood of someone out there placing a bet on such a prop? If he goes somewhere else, I don't know what that looks like. He was limited to just 14 regular-season games last season because of the ailment, which confounded the Sixers .

The Boy And The Piano cost £7million to make and Mr John and his husband David Furnish helped the actors in perfecting the mannerisms. "I think emotionally he is thinking about the journey he's been on as an artist".

"Seeing the accuracy, and the work that has been put into to creating everything, the attention to detail is fantastic, so it is very exciting to see, it is like taking a step back in time".

The festive ad tells how one gift in particular inspired and influenced the course of a little boy's life.... and that little boy just happens to be Elton John, with the soundtrack using his classic track, Your Song. The young Elton has learned a skill that will stay with him for life.

I'm not crying, you are.
