Tesco's Christmas advert has declared that there is no naughty list in 2020.

After what's proved to be nothing short of a hellish year for the whole world, Tesco's festive ad is set to lift spirits of the nation with its relatable narrative.

The ad, which focuses in on families celebrating Christmas, sees individuals fess up to what they've done wrong during the pandemic.

The ad kicks off with a little girl confess to the camera: "I gave my sister a really terrible haircut," as a nod to the makeovers people were forced to give their loved ones earlier this year in lockdown when salons were shut.

"What if I'm on the naughty list?" she asked.

But the voiceover soon says: "Relax. After this year, Tesco says there is no naughty list…so take that cake, you deserve it."

The camera then pans to a man at home, who confesses: "I may have bought too many loo rolls," as the camera zooms out to his house where his child builds a snowman with the excess loo rolls he'd bought.

Other people from different home then pop up, admitting they, too, bought too many loo rolls which forced supermarkets to quickly sell out of the necessities.
