Christmas dinner table

Iceland supermarket is the cheapest when it comes to Christmas dinner - costing less than £5 a head - while Sainsbury's is the most expensive one.

The budget supermarket has priced up how much it charges for Christmas dinner compared with six other supermarkets, and the whole meal costs £18.50 for a family of four, or £4.62 each.

It includes a turkey breast joint with stuffing for just £6 plus all the trimmings (cocktail sausages, brussel sprouts, mixed vegetables and red cabbage) for £1 each and goose fat roast potatoes for £1.50.

Asda is the second cheapest, its whole Christmas dinner costing £19.27, with Aldi's £20.26 price tag, close behind.

Not known for its budget prices Sainsbury's is the most expensive out of the seven. Its Christmas dinner costs £29.85 in total and items such as its stuffed turkey breast, selling for £11, cost sufficiently more than the cheaper supermarkets.
