Devastated Brits have been left feeling let down after major supermarkets ruined Christmas with “rancid” turkeys up and down the country.

Several customers have opened up their turkeys this morning to be left disappointed with Christmas dinner hopes being dashed.

A number of social media users have taken to the internet to complain with some citing “rotten” smells and even “mould” on their ruined turkeys.

It also seems it is not just one particular supermarket to blame as customers from M&S, Aldi, and Tesco have all complained, reports Hull Live.

One woman shared a photo of an Oakham Turkey Crown from M&S with a price tag of £37.80 and use by date of December 27.

She said: "Oh no @marksandspencer the turkey is off though in date! Bought at #Teddington store but don't think they will appreciate me returning as smells bad!

"Can I still request a refund? #Christmas without Turkey but #MerryChristmas to all – it could be worse."

Another M&S customer bought a turkey crown for a whopping £71.28 with a use by date of December 27 and found mould on the turkey.

The customer suggested the supermarket might be better called "mould and spencer".

An Aldi customer was also left upset after opening their East Anglian Bronze Roly Poly turkey, which is believed to be over £30, to find the “turkey is rotten and slimy, the stench is unbearable.”

Another Aldi customer in Cardiff tweeted on Christmas Eve: "@AldiUK so disappointed to open my turkey from Cardiff Bay store and see that it is rotten and smells absolutely rancid."

A Tesco customer was also left disgruntled after their turkey was found to “stink”.

The customer, Kayleigh, said: “bought a Turkey 2 days ago.. opened to prepare today best by date 26th but absolute stinks and is definitely gone off!

"Christmas dinner ruined tomorrow."

Tesco has responded to Kayleigh's message and said they were “truly sorry” about the turkey and advised her to return it to the branch.

They said staff would then find the “best resolution” for the situation.

M&S and Aldi have been approached for comment.
