Percy Pig Christmas Tree launches at M&S and Brits are overjoyed

Sweets, cakes and now a festive tree!

M&S has launched a Percy Pig Christmas Tree and Brits are thrilled.

The festive launch comes after ED! told how the store’s famous Colin the Caterpillar had a rival in the birthday cake stakes after Percy launched his very own Celebration Cake.

Now, however, the cute pink piggy has raised the stakes even further by launching his own Christmas tree.

What did M&S say about the Percy Pig Christmas Tree?

The M&S Food Press Office account and Percy Pig himself shared the news of the launch.

Posting to his official account, Percy posted: “It’s me – on a Christmas tree!”

He also revealed that shoppers won’t just get a tree when they buy it because it also comes with “Percy lights and decorations and a pack of Percy sweets”.

“Who’s going to be decking their halls with one of these?” he asked.
