Sharing the full-length ad on social media, Aldi wrote: "Kevin's out in the cold. Will he get home in time for Christmas?"

It follows a 40-second teaser that dropped at the weekend, which showed Kevin flying in a plane with a turkey when he accidentally gets ejected from the aircraft and have to parachute to safety, while the plane goes up into a fireball.

His other child says poignantly: "It's not Christmas until my Daddy gets home."

After dodging deathly icicles in a cold river, the two stumble upon Santa, who says kindly: "Let's get you home. I've got an idea."

He pops Kevin and his hedgehog pal in the basket on front of his bike and cycles through the sky - this time a nod to ET - and manages to get them back to Katie and co.

Another wrote: "We all need something to distract our minds a bit. Love it, and the fact it is more the style of when Kevin first came on the scene."

A fourth added: "We love hearing about Kevin. In a world that is a bit crazy at the present time his story is a gentle reminder that all will be well in the end."
