Taking inspiration from the classic holiday movie, Kevin has to fend for himself when his family accidentally leaves him at home and he hears an intruder on the roof.

Kevin devises a series of traps to ward off the home invader – before it is revealed to be Father Christmas.

Aldi marketing director Adam Zavalis said: “Christmas celebrates the joy of being with loved ones and this year, more than ever, we all need a bit of light entertainment as we celebrate the season together. 

“It wouldn’t be the festive season without Kevin the Carrot on our TV screens and this year’s Yuletide performance is sure to get the nation shouting ‘Kevin!’ as we welcome him back for the seventh year.”
