This panto – called Aldirella – was first advertised yesterday, and began at 11.20am on Aldi‘s Twitter page today (Wednesday December 22).
Before it officially began Aldi tweeted: “Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, please take your seats for the first ever @TwitterUK panto! @Tesco @asda @sainsburys @LidlGB @marksandspencer you’ll like this… #VeryAldiPanto.”
This activity is fairly on form for Aldi, who have previously taken swipes at M&S who have said some of their products, such as the Cuthbert the Caterpillar cake, are derivative of their own.

Asda was then described as the stepmother “green with envy” due to Aldirella being the fairest in the land.
