It will then travel to a number of destinations such as Exeter, Cardiff, Bristol, Manchester and London.

The final tour date will be on December 16, ending in Croydon.

The Coca Cola van has travelled more than 737,000 miles since it’s first journey eight years ago.

This includes 397 stops, which included a marriage proposal in Winchester and a personal visit for a previous winner.
