I often used to think the adverts were better than the programmes

What are your favourite Christmas adverts and your worst this year ?

I have to admit that I canĀ“t think of any this year that I either dislike or like so maybe I actually do get up and make the coffee then :-D

I like the John Lewis one.

At the moment Tesco, the old boy that falls asleep after Christmas pudding, reminds me of my dad, except I do it now ;-)

I really dislike the ads that have the opera type singer (is it go compare?) I just don't find them funny at all and wouldn't encourage me to use the company.
As I am typing Clilitbang ad came on, another one that annoys me.

I loved the one with Harvey the dog, not on now though.

Miss Harvey - however the exploits of the Meerkat gang shown on Corrie have me in fits - each one different and more being added each week. Even OH who disappears as soon as music begins waits to see the first one!

One disapointing one stands out - Iceland! Stacey Solomon was a big improvement last year after the dreadful Kerry Katona, but this year it looks like Mums have abandoned it!
