A photo of the cut-price lamb was shared online by one X (formerly Twitter) user who has spotted it on a Facebook group. She wrote: "Lord, I've seen what you've done for others…"

The lamb, which was resting on a sofa, was formerly £29.33, but was reduced to just 10p. A receipt next to it then showed that the shopper had got it even cheaper, at 5p, thanks to a Nectar Price saving.

The post has gone viral this week since being shared, racking up a staggering 1.6million views so far. Many couldn't believe what a bargain it was, as one person exclaimed: "Bloody hell that’s cheap," as another asked: "WTF?" A third probed: "10p? Is it gangrenous?" While a fourth chimed in: "It’s the extra nectar saving of 5p that’s done for me!"

However, despite the cheap price, some admitted that it wouldn't be for them. One wrote: "No chance I'd trust a 10p leg of lamb. There's a reason it's 10p and my stomach doesn't want to find out why," while another branded it "so grim".
