The frozen deal includes a British turkey crown, roast potatoes, Brussels sprouts, roast parsnips, stuffing, Yorkshire puddings and a dessert.

The Christmas dinner deal will be available in the Co-op’s frozen aisle from 16 December until 26 December.

Calum Kirk, head of frozen at Co-op, said: "As well as excellent value for money, quality was also key in ensuring we deliver a great offer to our customers for Christmas so we have included only the best products in the deal to ensure everybody enjoys every bit of their Christmas dinner – even the sprouts."

Previously speaking to HuffPost UK Lifestyle Steve Nowottny from MoneySavingExpert said a lot of families feel the financial pinch at this time of year.

He said: "The most important point is to spend what you can afford, not buy what you desire. Christmas is one day – don’t ruin the whole of next year for it."
