ALDI has released its Willy Wonka-inspired Christmas advert and a fan-favourite character is back.
Kevin the carrot has made his much-anticipated TV return today, as supermarket Aldi launches its 2023 Christmas ad.
This time, he's paying a visit to William Conker's magical Christmas factory.
The ad opens with the five lucky winners excitedly waiting to enter the magical Christmas factory.
Accompanied by grate grandpa, Kevin embarks on his tour of the festive goodie-filled factory, encountering all sorts of mischievous characters on the way including dancing plumty-dumptys and a spoilt little sprout.
With the other lucky winners including 'greedy, gluttonous grape' and 'naughty green kiwi' each landing themselves in bother and falling away, Kevin is finally the last carrot standing.

Jemma Townsend, marketing director at Aldi UK, said: "Christmas is made magical by coming together and sharing the joy of celebration even in tough times- just like Kevin wants to with his Christmas wish.

But Kevin didn't appear in Aldi's teaser advert leaving some viewers worried he might have been given the chop.
