John Lewis leave people in tears as they release new Christmas advert

John Lewis’ Christmas advert tells the story of a couple getting ready to welcome a foster child into their home. 

John Lewis have finally released their 2022 Christmas advert, and it’s one of the most emotional yet. 

The advert, which is considerably lower budget than previous years, highlights children in the care sector. 

In the advert, Peaky Blinders John Paul Hurley can be seen attempting to learn how to skateboard.

The dad-to-be can be seen failing on many attempts before finally seeing some progress in his new hobby.

While viewing the advert for the first time, people will be unaware the reason he is learning how to skate, but in the final scene he can be seen, with his partner, welcoming a foster child into his home. 

The young girl, Cassie, can be seen holding her own skateboard, making it clear this was the reason the man was learning the new skill.

John Lewis teamed up with Action for Children and Who Cares? as they share the shocking statistic that there are 108,000 children growing up in care in the UK.
