Richard Walker, Managing Director at Island, said: “Christmas has become more important than ever this year as families lost valuable time together last time. We are therefore pleased to support our customers in reducing the costs of their banquets and in releasing a further 180,000 delivery spaces by Christmas Eve.

“It’s not just about winning the battle for the cheapest supermarket vegetables – we wanted to make sure that everyone can have a nice Christmas with their loved ones without having to worry about the money hangover that often ensues.”

Earlier this month, Iceland said it would not monitor the rules for face masks in stores.

Richard Walker, executive director of the Iceland frozen food chain, said they would instead focus on “the long-term recovery of the main drag”.

Mr Walker said workers in the workshop should not be asked to intervene if they spot someone without a mask and that Icelandic workers would not monitor policies in their stores.

He told Good Morning Britain, “When you walk in, there will be posters in the window asking you to put on a mask.

“The store manager can even politely ask them to enter the store if they aren’t monitoring the policies in their stores.
