The advert was first shown on Channel 4 last Thursday and has do far been viewed over 6.8m times.

Barnardo’s tweeted: “We’re delighted to be @johnlewisretail’s charity partner this Christmas! Look out for their ad on TV tonight to see #MozTheMonster.

“All proceeds from Moz merch will help us continue our vital work with young carers.”

Craig Inglis, customer director at John Lewis, said: "This year’s Christmas campaign brings to life the power of children’s imaginations and the joy of great friendships.

"Moz and Joe’s story is magical and heartwarming and I’m sure it will be loved by all of our customers, young and old.”
