    A regal Kevin will be available for a limited period to mark Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.

    What is Kevin the Carrot?

    Kevin the Carrot is a firm favourite of Aldi shoppers and was launched six years ago in the supermarket’s Christmas advert.

    Over 1.3 million Kevins sold in a one-week period last Christmas, and some Kevins can fetch up to £1,000 on eBay.

    Fans of the nation’s favourite root vegetable will have to act fast if they want to get their hands on the limited-edition toys - once they’re gone, they’re gone.
