"Our customers said they at Christmas and lobster was seen as a luxury," the Daily Star quoted a company spokeswoman as saying.

Marks and Spencer is also selling the gourmet meal with a freshly cooked whole lobster priced at 15.99 pounds.

Figures have revealed that Brits are forking out almost 20 percent more for their Christmas meals this year, compared to 2010.
