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. We then see a series of flashbacks from throughout his career, showcasing various performances of the track and its initial studio recording.

The advert is titled "The Boy & The Piano" and chronicles Elton's life from childhood where he actually gets his very first piano all the way to the present day.

"The ad is absolutely fantastic and I've truly loved every minute of being a part of it".

Sir Elton is played by actors throughout the advert, except for the opening and closing scenes.

The John Lewis Christmas ad description is "This year's story is about the power of a gift".

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.
