Blokes can find a single red rose for £1, a dozen for £3 or champagne for a tenner.

With the supermarket giants slashing prices to woo customers down their aisles, shopping around can see a dozen roses, bubbly and a meal deal picked up for £21.

Tesco roses are £1 and Lidl has a bunch of twelve for just £3. Tesco, Asda and Morrisons are offering a dozen for only a fiver.

Cupids can also enjoy Asda’s £10 Louvel Fontaine Champagne Brut or Marks & Spencer’s romantic three-course meal for £20.
