Evie Lancaster shared the picture of the soapy shop on Twitter last night with the caption: ‘What precautions are you all taking during the global pandemic? My mum is bathing her Tesco delivery.’

Thousands of people are sharing the image on social media, with many thanking Evie for giving them a good laugh.
