HUNDREDS of shoppers queued up to have their photo taken next to the iconic CocaCola truck when it rolled into Bournemouth town centre on Tuesday.

The star of the magical Holidays are Coming Christmas advert parked at the Triangle and was accompanied by a live band singing Christmas songs.

Free cans of coke were handed out to shoppers while they waited to have their photo taken.

Katie Titheridge, who went with her boyfriend Dave Kelly and son Aiden, said: “We come every year to get our photo taken, it’s always really busy, and we absolutely love it.”

Many shoppers recognised the truck from the Christmas advert and saw it as the start of the festive season.

Brian Goddard, who also brought his son, said: “I always see it on TV and it makes you feel so Christmassy so I brought my son after school for him to have his picture taken.”
