They say a sequel never lives up to the original but this breaks the mould as Kevin the Carrot finds love in this year's Aldi Christmas advert.

Aldi's really funny 'Kevin the Carrot' is the latest shot in the Christmas advert wars

Remember Kevin the Carrot from Aldi's Christmas 2016 advert?

Well he's back...and this year he's got company!

Kevin the Carrot finds love accidentally in the form of female carrot Katie, aboard a midnight express train on his quest to find Santa.

This puntastic sequel will melt your heart as you follow Kevin's adventure once again across the dinner table, sporting some of Aldi's yummies of course.

Kevin's voyage is edge of the seat stuff as he encounters a murder victim and even sustains a pea-shot wound along the way but true love prevails and all roads lead to the North Pole.

The ad first aired last night and viewers were excited about the plucky carrot's return.

The battle of the Christmas ads has well and truly begun with M&S and Lidl releasing their adverts over the past week.

Lidl opted to keep it simple and stuck with a traditional heart warming 'homecoming' advert which really tugs at the heart strings.

However the king of Christmas adverts John Jewis, have yet to unveil their masterpiece.
