And there’s no scrimping – for that bargain price she’s got turkey, roast winter veggies, stuffing balls, pigs in blankets and gravy.

Claire, from Staffordshire, told her social media followers she bought a £60 Christmas hamper from MuscleFood, and extras from discount retailers, to keep the cost down.

Plus there’s turkey tikka masala for £1.07 per person and turkey pie at £1.10.
