A pack of chicken kievs will be reduced from £2.60 to £2.25, while a bottle of sanitiser will go down from £9 to £6.

Chief executive David Potts said: “Today’s cuts demonstrate our continued commitment to doing all we can to help when it comes to the cost of grocery shopping.

"In addition to the cuts we made to the Savers range at the start of the month and then our fuel promotion, we’re now cutting the price on even more popular products.”

It comes after the Governor of the Bank of England said inflation is likely to fall “quite rapidly” starting in the late spring.

The Office for National Statistics said the rate of Consumer Prices Index inflation fell to 10.5 per cent in December from 10.7 per cent, offering a further sign that the cost-of-living crisis may have passed its peak.
