Following the success of last year’s ads, the discounter has worked alongside agency McCann UK to produce the sequel.

Kevin and his new lady-friend Katie will take centre stage in the 60-second advert, which will be screened for the first time on ITV tonight.

Golden Globe winner Jim Broadbent, who narrated last year’s ad, has teamed up with Aldi again to provide the voiceover.

The German grocer has produced a further 14 product-focused 20- and 30-second ads, which will also be aired across its social media channels.

As part of the campaign, Aldi is selling Kevin the Carrot and Katie the Carrot soft toys for £2.99 to support Teenage Cancer Trust.

Aldi marketing director Adam Zavalis said: “Bringing back Kevin was always a compelling option as he’d worked so amazingly well last year. We had our best Christmas on record, delivering a 15.1% growth in the UK, with Kevin playing an important part in this success.”

He added: “This time around we’re exploring more of Kevin’s character and introducing the love of his life, Katie.

“Together they’ll explore our most incredible festive range ever, ensuring everyone can get everything they need for Christmas at unbeatably low prices.”
