The supermarket chain, which has already limited all products to a maximum of three per customer both online or in stores, said that online orders already placed would be unaffected unless customers try to make changes to them - anyone altering an existing order will become subject to the 80-item limit.

A spokesperson for the brand added: "We're at full capacity for the next few weeks and we ask those who are able to safely come to stores to do so, instead of shopping online.

"This will help us to free up more slots for the more vulnerable."
