Written by Chief Editor.

The Post has revealed that this year there was a Nottingham connection to the Christmas John Lewis advert. In the commercial, Elton is wearing a dressing gown which was made by city designer Daniel Hanson.

The 2018 ad showcases the star through the various stages of his life with the gown, made of a black cashmere base and hand-dyed silk yarn, featuring at the beginning and end of the clip.

The garment was commissioned by the songwriter in 2011, with 450 hours of hand embroidery going into its creation.
