Ricky Tomlinson and Sue Johnston, lifelong Reds and much-loved TV combo, have reunited for Liverpool FC’s Christmas advert.
They are best known as Jim and Barbara Royle in their 40-year on-screen partnership, which inspired this 60-second seasonal delight.
Ricky and Sue play Nan and Grandad to one excited young Red in this adaptation of a traditional seasonal tale. Ricky and Sue recount the lines as the child falls off into a bizarre dream as they read the bedtime story on Christmas Eve with an LFC twist.
She imagines her Liverpool FC heroes performing seasonal customs and chores. Virgil Van Dijk, Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker, Wataru Endo, Curtis Jones, Rachael Laws, and Gemma Bonner are among the Liverpool FC players in the squad.
Forever Red John Aldridge makes a brief appearance, reenacting the legendary 1988 FA Cup Anfield rap.
Set in a classic Merseyside home, it includes unforgettable items for Liverpool FC supporters to add to their Christmas wish list.
The club’s Christmas product collection includes 100s of exclusive presents for all ages, including stocking filler ideas, a secret Santa, festive family pyjamas, and the latest Nike equipment, training, and lifestyle offerings.
The LFC Christmas range is available at all Official Liverpool FC Retail Stores (click here to find the nearest store), online here and via the LFC Store App.
Other gift ideas include LFC Official Memberships for the whole family, LFCTV Go subscriptions and Anfield Museum & Tour vouchers.
