Heathrow's Christmas advert 2018 melts viewers' hearts as bears find their way home for festive holidays

It could be the most heartwarming one yet, as two bears make it home to see the family – just in time for Christmas.

Already, fans have flocked to social media to express their love for the new ad.

One user said: "You know what's made me a mess today? The #HeathrowBears".

Another said: "OMG the #HeathrowBears advert just melted my heart".

A third fan said: "Just stop being so cute! Im sobbing mid carriage on my way to work! #heathrowbears @HeathrowAirport That, is how you make content."

And fourth said: "My favourite Christmas advert is back!!  TIS THE SEASON #HeathrowBears"

It opens with the much-loved Doris and Edward Bair enjoying their retirement in Florida.

Edward is soaking up the rays on a lilo, wearing festive swimming shorts and applying layers of tanning oil.

But soon, the pair are shown longing for a more traditional Christmas and missing their family.

After hearing the sound of carols, speaking to their relatives and seeing images of home, The Bairs decide that Christmas in the sunshine just isn't the same.

They remember cosy fires and hanging stockings and seeing the grandchildren playing, and Doris and Edward decide they need to make it home to spend the big day with their loved ones.

The Bairs hop on a plane, sharing a kiss under the mistletoe on board, and eventually arrive back in Heathrow – the same location their eyes met and their love story began 50 years ago.

This isn't the first time we've seen the cute bears, they've been featured in the airport's Christmas advertising since 2016.

The first advert showed the pair being reunited with their loved ones at the arrivals gate.

Last year's offering was even more emotional, telling the 50 year love story of Doris and Edward.

This year's ad is set to the 80’s classic ‘Every Time You Go Away’ by Paul Young, which heightens the emotional pull.

Paul Young, singer, songwriter and musician comments: “’Every Time You Go Away’ was first released over thirty years ago in 1985. So much has changed since then, however the feeling of loved ones going away is still the same.

"I’m delighted that it will feature on Heathrow’s Christmas advert which brings to life those feelings for Doris, Edward and the Bair family”.

Ross Baker, Heathrow’s Chief Commercial Officer said: “The nation’s love for Doris and Edward is overwhelming and has been since we first met them in 2016.

"For many people, being close to the ones we love is what really makes Christmas special. This is why we see The Bairs return to their family from warmer climes, as many of Heathrow’s passengers make similar journeys home for the festive season.”

Earlier today, Boots unveiled another tearjerker ad featuring a teenage girl seeing her mum properly for the first time.

Aldi's update shows the loveable Kevin the Carrot rescuing his family from the clutches of an evil parsnip.

Meanwhile anticipation is building ahead of the release of the John Lewis advert – but is this the teaser trailer for it?
