Think you love Christmas more than anyone else in the UK? Think again.

Why? Because one man has painted his ENTIRE home with characters from well-known festive TV adverts and movies.

Yes, really.

Christmas-mad Robert Wilcott spent a month decorating the front of his property in a bid to create the masterpiece which features Moz the monster from the John Lewis advert.

The 41-year-old painter and decorator’s mural covers the whole of his terraced house in Plymouth and also shows the talking carrots from the Aldi ad and Olaf the snowman from Frozen.

But why did he do it?

Well, generous Robert hopes the statement will help to raise £1,000 for the ‘Keep Me Close’ appeal at nearby Derriford Hospital, and he has launched a fundraising page to do so.

Dad-of-two Robert said: ‘I think this is the best year, it’s more current and it’s got stuff from the adverts, the carrots are from the Aldi advert and the bear is from the John Lewis advert.

‘It keeps getting better and better each year.’

The words ‘Merry Christmas’ are also stencilled across the red-and-white house, which is adorned with snowflakes and a painting of Santa with his reindeers.

Illuminated snowflakes and a glowing Santa light up the house at night.

His two nephews and brother-in-law also helped out with decorating the house in Honicknowle, Plymouth, Devon.

The money will help to build and maintain accommodation for parents who have babies born prematurely or with life threatening conditions, so they can stay at the hospital with their children.

‘One of my friend’s babies was really, really poorly, it’s a really good charity and it means that parents can be close to their babies,’ Robert said.

Last year he donated toys worth £500 to the children’s’ ward after winning a Christmas lights competition.
