Speaking about the campaign with the online department store, Carol said: "We have always had a tradition of going to Debenhams as part of the Christmas shopping, as they seem to have everything for all the family from stocking fillers to luxury gift sets. When they asked us to be their Christmas Family, I was personally over the moon and couldn’t wait to see what they had available this year."

Natalya, Carol and Jessica get into the Christmas spirit!

When it comes to starting festivities early, you won't find any Grinches here! Mark explained: "Christmas is a BIG thing in our house, even now the four children have moved out, we still all come together at Christmas time, all back at the family home. We’re so lucky to be able to all come together again this year and can’t wait for the celebrations, as well as the food and drink!"

The family has some great festive traditions, including Christmas PJs. Mark especially is a big fan. "100% love them!" Carol added: "So we used to dress up for Christmas Day, but over the years we have changed to more of a Christmas causal theme, which does include matching pyjama sets!! This year, have even created a matching set which includes one for your dog – which will be on Bubbles and Bella’s wish list for sure, they are a part of the family."
