Aldi has premiered its Christmas advert which sees the nation’s most beloved vegetable, Kevin the Carrot, return to screens to mark the start of the festive season and bring back the much needed wonder and magic of Christmas.
Film legend Colm Meaney stars as Santa and said the experience was a ‘total joy’.
Colm Meaney: “I thought it was about time that I played the big man himself and so was delighted to be asked by Aldi to be part of its Christmas campaign.”
“Kevin the Carrot and his family were incredibly welcoming on set and the whole experience was a total joy – even getting in and out of the big red suit.”
“This year has been incredibly challenging for everyone but I hope that over the festive season people will be able to enjoy this special time with family and friends – and maybe the odd mince pie or turkey sandwich.”
“Oh, and contrary to many men during lockdown I can confirm that the beard is not mine”.
