With Iceland Foods “promising” to freeze all prices on its own-label products amid soaring prices, Iceland’s Luxury Extra Tasty Turkey Joint with Bacon costs just £10 (1kg) while its Luxury Perfect Turkey Crown (shown in the trailer) costs £20 (2.2kg).
Iceland has also introduced an insurance scheme that promises all those who sign up a turkey regardless of what happens. This means customers should be guaranteed a turkey for the big day.
This comes amid warnings of Christmas turkey shortages in the UK over high demand and other issues.
Iceland has said all those who want to join its turkey insurance scheme must do so by Friday, November 18.
This can be done online via the Iceland website.
The advert shows one of the shop’s Luxury Perfect Turkey Crowns being cooked in a one-minute film.

Caspar Nelson, Marketing Director at Iceland Foods said: “We bow down to Netflix’s family orientated drama and pay homage to the fictional dramatisation in our version of The Crown. 
We do want to point out the differences though. Our version is inspired by the real-life events of a frozen turkey and the political and personal events that shape a delicious Christmas dinner.”
