The towns and cities which will be visited by the iconic Coca Cola truck this Christmas have today been revealed.

The glittering red truck rolling into town is a sign for many people that the festive countdown is well underway.

And now the soft drinks giant has revealed the UK destinations it will be visiting this Christmas.

There are two North-East stops - Asda at the Metro Retail Park in Gateshead from noon to 8pm on Thursday, 26 November, and the Mima Centre Square in Middlesbrough between the same times the following day.

'Holidays are coming' for 46 locations around the country, where visitors will be able to catch a glimpse of the famous truck from the advert.

Coca Cola made the announcement after posting a teaser tweet reading: "Are we coming to your town? RT to find out! When we hit 500 RTs we'll reveal all 46 stops..."

There will also be a chance to sip on a Coke and enjoy a festive choir to get you in the spirit.

The truck first appeared on TV screens in November 1995, and since then it's become a regular feature of festive TV schedules in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Never one to miss a marketing trick, the company now tours the truck around the UK for thousands of fans.
