Amy Bishop, who is responsible for Deliveroo at Morrisons said: “Everyone is so busy at this time of year that it can be easy to forget about things until you really need them. At that point, the thought of leaving the house and heading back to the shops can add to the stress. Thanks to our partnership with Deliveroo you can order those forgotten items straight to your door and get back to the festive celebrations.”

Morrisons first announced a partnership with Deliveroo in April to support the most vulnerable by having essential items quickly delivered to their doorstep. 35 Christmas favourites including pigs in blankets and mulled wine were recently added to the service to bring the total number of products available to over 300.

Deliveroo orders are available from 182 Morrisons stores across the UK, covering one in four households (6.8 million).
