So will it make a hat-trick of visits by dropping by in 2018?

Coca-Cola bosses are keeping this year's tour date a closely guarded secret, with the full list of locations likely to be revealed in early November.

Wherever it goes, visitors of all ages line-up to see the truck that's becoming the star of the soft drink giant's '˜Holidays Are Coming' Christmas advertising campaign.

The 6.5m-long 13 tonne truck has been touring the UK's roads for five years while Coca-Cola's Christmas adverts have been seen on our TV screens since November 1995.

It dropped into Sheffield last year '“ but missed out the city on its 2016 tour but made its debut there in 2015.

It has also visited Doncaster on the last two tours.

Since 2011, the truck has made nearly 400 stops across the UK and is lit by 372 bulbs and 8,772 fairy lights.

It has travelled more than 730,000 miles '“ the equivalent to 29 times around the world.

As soon as the dates are in, we'll let you know!
