Coke's Christmas truck, which announced that 'holidays are coming' for so many of us before we grew up and became cynical about advertising, is usually depicted on a snow-flecked road that winds its way through tall fir trees.

Between 28 November and 23 December however it will visit such festive sites as Asda Milton Keynes and Back Lane Car Park, Newton.

The violently red truck will park up and blast Christmas tracks across England and Wales, also stopping in at a factory outlet in Clacton and an Intu shopping centre in Norwich.
