Marks & Spencer has brought back its popular Percy Pig advent calendar for 2020.

Because let's face it, we need plenty of Christmas cheer after what has been a horrible year.

Whilst there are heaps of unusual and amazing advent calendars to choose from this year, including beauty countdowns and a sex toy calendar for a saucy Christmas, M&S has ensured that fans of the squidgy caterpillar can still countdown to December 25th the classic way.

The supermarket is now selling its chocolate-filled Percy Pig advent calendars in stores across the UK for only £5.

You can buy it online alongside a Santa's Selection advent calendar

If you can't get to your nearest M&S, then the delightful countdown is also available to buy online as part of a set with a Santa's Selection advent calendar - but delivery isn't until November 3rd.

The festive-themed box contains 24 milk chocolate Percy Pigs to indulge on throughout December.

And for Christmas Day, there's regular bag of Percy Pigs hiding behind the final door.

The advent calendar is part of Marks & Spencer's Christmas food range, which features the UK’s first light up bottles of gin liqueur with 23 carat edible gold leaf. Impressive or what?

The high street store is also selling an impressive range of musical house shortbread biscuit tins for £5, as well as a selection of Percy Pig gifts from just £5.

Shoppers can find out their nearest M&S branch by using the online store finder tool here.

Meanwhile, Sainsbury’s has unveiled its Christmas 2020 food range which includes a pigs in blankets wreath.

The new seasonal products will launch in stores nationwide from November 4th.
