It's that time of the year again, when supermarkets are full of meal deals for Valentine's Day.

If you're staying in this Valentine's Day - and a recent survey by Aldi Scotland suggests that 65% of couples will be doing so - then you might want to check out the meal deals available at the big supermarkets for a last minute deal.

Most will offer three or four courses for around £15-25, often with wine or a soft drink. Aldi found that steak was a popular go-to for Valentine's, so you'll find cuts of beef in most supermarkets too - as part of their meal deals.

Here's what's on offer for Valentine's day 2024.
