Viewers were quick to jump on surfer Lucie Donlan's slightly odd fruit eating habits, with more than a few people taking to Twitter to question why she was eating both an apple and a banana at the same time.

Some joked that it could be a subtle nod to her current indecision over choosing between fellow contestants Joe Garratt and Tommy Fury.

It wasn't long before the marketing team at Aldi spotted an opportunity, taking to Facebook they posted this pic with the caption: "Bit weird but ok. Just 32p total."
