The advert has been watched more than seven million times.

The Allegro advert shows an elderly gentleman learning English before he sets out to spend Christmas in England with his family.

The man is determined to make an impression as it will be the first time he gets to meet his new granddaughter.

Viewers should be warned that a small part of the clip sees the elderly man swearing at a rubber duck in the bath.

“It’s beautifully made and a gorgeous little film, which helps,” said Ian Henderson, Executive Creative Director at A.M.L., a London based brand and advertising agency.
