One Twitter user tweeted the retailer and said: “Are holidays and also more importantly the truck coming this year?”

The company responded: “Our lips are sealed, Matty.”

Today they released a list of places they will visit as part of this year's tour.

The Christmas truck will visit Leeds on 27 and 28 November at White Rose Shopping Centre.

The truck has also been confirmed for Glasgow and Newcastle.

In 2019, the Coca-Cola Christmas truck visited 20 stops across the UK.

The lorry stopped at supermarkets and shopping centres across the UK, including in Edinburgh, Cardiff, Taunton, Newcastle, Leeds, Bristol, Portsmouth, Gainsborough, Manchester, London, Dudley and Liverpool.
