If you’re looking for an unusual gift that will show your nearest and dearest how much you love them this Valentine’s Day, Marks & Spencer may have the answer with their new ‘love sausage’.

Taking to Twitter, the retailer cheekily asked the nation, “Are you ready for our Love Sausage?”

Not just any sausage

The social media post showed a picture of the heart shaped sausage encasing some fried eggs and garnish, set on a romantic candelit table, complete with rose petals.

The post said, “Are you ready for our Love Sausage?

“Heart-shaped, lightly-truffled, wrapped in bacon and in store tomorrow.

“Say it with sausages – tag who you’ll be sharing your Love Sausage with this Valentine’s Day! #MyMarksFave”

Social media users were quick to point out that this isn’t just any love sausage – it’s an M&S love sausage.

A Valentine’s hit?

Users reacted with both shock and delight, commenting:
