It’s the season of Christmas retail ads competing over which is the cutest, and this year there’s a new contender – and it’s not even a Christmas ad.
ITV has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming series of Dancing On Ice, and the fans love it.
The ad brings back the polar bear heroes of last series, and introduces an unlikely skating partner – a red squirrel.
After a polar bear cub has a tumble onto some thin ice, accidentally bringing the squirrel along with him, the pair find themselves in danger of going over a waterfall.
But with a bit of luck, and some spectacular skating moves, the manage to spin each other back to safety.
Fans took to twitter to rave about the adorable ad, claiming it’s better than the famously sweet John Lewis ads.
