Cheryl Fernandez- Versini turns on the Oxford Street lights as Monty the penguin captures the nation’s heart

Cheryl Fernandez Versini led the trio of performers as the Christmas lights on Oxford Street were switched on outside John Lewis on Thursday night. The singer pulled funny faces and couldn’t contain her excitement as she pushed the button to turn on the iconic lights.

She was joined on stage by Capital FM presenters David Berry and Lisa Snowden as well as a host of other performers. Despite the star studded turn out, the main attraction by far was Monthy the penguin- the star of John Lewis’ new Christmas campaign ad. The Christmas ad featuring a boy with a teddy bear penguin has already gained almost 3 million views since it’s debut on Wednesday.
