One in four people will be making dinner on the big day for the first time, the supermarket says, and nearly half are planning on having more than one Christmas dinner this year.

So it’s helping out by offering a full roast dinner on demand as the festive season draws near.

And all it costs is a £5 donation to charity.

The dinners will be available to pre-order on Saturday December 12 through the Deliveroo app for delivery on Sunday 13 at a time you choose.

It will be available in certain locations in in locations in London, Edinburgh and Manchester.

The Christmas dinner comes with veg side dishes, including carrots and roast potatoes from the supermarket, cooked by top chef Neil Rankin.

There’s also a choice between a traditional turkey or vegan meal.

Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi, said: “After a year unlike any other, we want to give our customers a treat by taking the stress out of cooking at home, which is why we’ve partnered with Neil Rankin and Deliveroo to create Christmas on a Plate.

“Our research has shown that people will be celebrating in many different ways this year, but one thing is for certain – the nation is still gearing up to enjoy an amazing Christmas dinner and that’s where we’re best placed to help, with beautiful food at great value. 

“We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy quality food not just at Christmas, but every day of the year, and that’s why all proceeds of our initiative will go to Neighbourly, supporting local charities and communities.”

Mr Rankin, who has appeared on the Great British Menu TV show, has also shared his top tips for making the best roasties and tastiest turkeys.

He says the secret to a crisp roast potato is making sure they are as dry as possible.

He said: “After boiling it’s best to let your potatoes cool as much as possible. Even better, leave them for a few hours in the fridge or if you’re in a rush dust with a little flour.”

And he also warns not to stuff your turkey.

He said: “Stuffing the turkey slows down then cooking time as it restricts the airflow meaning there’s more room for error.

“Cook your stuffing on a separate tray under the bird and use it to catch the dripping. It tastes better this way too as it gets nice and crispy. “
