Christmas is right around the corner, meaning it’s time to (temporarily) throw all you cares, worries and responsibilities out of the window.

And of course, your strict diet and fitness regime.

Meaning it’s officially bottomless prosecco time.

But if you’re planning on popping a bottle or two over the festive break, you better stock up soon.

And by soon, we mean today — Friday December 22.

That’s because, thanks to the weekend rush, this year if you snooze you really do lose.

Supermarket Sainsbury’s have predicted that, if previous years are anything to go by, all their fizz will sell out by December 23.

According to their calculations, they’re forecast to sell a record-breaking volume of sparkling wine.

A staggering 489,000 bottles in fact.

So, to sum up, make sure you purchase all the prosecco you envisage needing over the week before the day is up.

Luckily, there is plenty of offers to be had.

While Sainsbury’s have price cuts across some of their best products, shops like Aldi have some amazing offers, too.
