Video: UK Post Office unveils its first Christmas advert for years

The Post Office has jumped on the Christmas bandwagon by releasing its first festive advert in five years, as it tries to entice more people into its branches.

The one minute television advert will have its first TV showing during the breaks of The X Factor on ITV on Sunday evening.

Spurning the “emotional” approach favoured by John Lewis and Sainsbury’s this year, the Post Office chose a lighter touch for its “Get Christmas all wrapped up” campaign.

The commercial features the comedian Robert Webb, singer Pixie Lott, Downton Abbey’s Jim Carter, actress Amanda Holden and chef Gino D’Acampo.
