Now, this has totally made our day. Marks and Spencer is known for the fab Dine-In meal deal, where you get three courses and drinks for a set price. It's basically our trusty go-to when the fridge is bare and we fancy restaurant food from the comfort of our own home. Well, amazing news HELLO! readers, the popular store has just announced its meal deal is going permanent from now until Christmas *does celebratory dance on chair. For the first time ever, M&S Dine-In has moved to run continuously up until 17 December. For £12 you'll get a main, side, dessert, a bottle of wine or two soft drinks.

If you're panicking that those classic dishes like steak or rotisserie chicken may fall off the extended menu, fear not – the store's most popular meals will stay firmly put. And there's more… new soft drinks options have been added to the menu.
