Mr Kanaris said: "This whole journey started with an idea back in April and grew from there.

"I wanted the song to be encompass everything about Christmas and celebrate the festive spirit, something to really resonate with our listeners."

Karen Doherty, convenience store director for the North at Tesco, said: "We're so excited to see our Christmas fundraising plans come to fruition and have the chance to raise some money for a great cause.

"I'm so proud to see colleagues from across the north come together.

"It's a great display of our colleagues supporting people across the whole region."

To promote the song, all Tesco Express stores in the north of England will be hosting a Poptastic over the weekend.
