ALDI has been named the cheapest supermarket in Britain by consumer group Which?.

Shoppers at the discount chain could save almost £26 on 45 popular items compared with the most expensive store.

An Aldi shop was on average £26 cheaper than other leading supermarkets

A monthly study found Aldi’s basket was £82.03 on average, while at Waitrose it was £107.71.

Asda was cheapest in a survey of 144 items which did not include Aldi and Lidl, as those chains do not always stock certain branded items.

Reena Sewraz, Which? Retail Editor, said: “ Nobody wants to pay over the odds for their weekly food shop, especially as the cost of living crisis stretches household budgets for millions of people.

“Our findings show that while prices are going up, some supermarkets are significantly more expensive than others.

“As well as choosing a supermarket that is cheap overall, other ways to save include swapping from branded to supermarket own-brand products, sticking to a shopping list, and resisting the temptation to pick up special offers you may not need.”
