However, fellow discounter Lidl was close behind, just £2.90 more expensive with a basket total of £121.31.

This month, Which? included loyalty prices in its price comparison, with a basket of items featuring Tesco Clubcard prices costing £130.90, while Sainsbury’s Nectar was found to be slightly more at £132.90.

Without any loyalty pricing schemes, Asda was the cheapest traditional supermarket at £131.42, followed by Tesco at £134.30, Sainsbury’s at £137.51, and Morrisons at £140.19.

Other than Waitrose, which was found to be the priciest at £151.01, Ocado was named the second most expensive at £144.06.

It comes as research from Kantar found that 22% of households still say that they are struggling and are unable to cover bills.

Aldi UK managing director of buying Julie Ashfield said: “With many households still struggling to make ends meet, we’re more committed than ever to remaining the UK’s cheapest supermarket. This latest Which? analysis shows that Aldi prices just can’t be matched, even with a loyalty card.

“At Aldi we’re dedicated to having clear, consistently low, prices so shoppers know how much they’re spending long before they get to the till. And we’re really proud of the award-winning quality of the products we’re providing at these amazing prices.”
