Brace yourselves! As M&S has created a huge range of nibbles which if you’re having virtually with friends and family you are not going to want to share anyways. Enjoy Plant Kitchen mini Chicken Kieves (£5) or dip into the cheesiest gooiest Tear & share handcrafted cheese puff pastry with molten Camembert (£12) just make sure you have a napkin handy.

Simply pop in the oven and cook up the most delicious, succulent turkey you’ll ever eat, serves 6-8.
This festive season, Marks & Spencer have gone that extra mile when it comes to its vegetarian and vegan main menu. It’s mouth-watering Plant Kitchen Vegan festive wreath (£10) packed full of roasted mushrooms, chestnuts and pumpkin seeds are one you won’t want to miss out on a slice of.
Once you’ve finally decided on what your centrepiece will be, it’s time to load your plate with succulent sides and for 2020, it’s all about its Best Ever pigs in blankets £5 and Plant Kitchen no chorizo pigs in duvets £5, which Marks have said: “You will really struggle to taste the difference!”
