Talking about why Aurora was selected to sing the track, a source said: “The bosses at John Lewis have spent months choosing who will be their voice of Christmas.

“There have been lots of options and the process has been kept top secret. Even though Aurora is a complete unknown, they felt her quirky voice is perfect for the song.

“There were initially some discussions about the song being a cover of Steve Winwood’s Higher Love, but the Oasis track won out.”
