Calling all pet owners, this nifty vacuum is reduced to less than £200 right now. While we’re yet to review this exact model, the similar Dyson V11 animal (£499, Ao.com) took the top spot in our guide to the best pet vacuum cleaners. Our writer praised its weight, which makes it “easy to use all over the home” (the V8 is actually lighter), and its superb suction, clearing up “even the most matted sections of animal hair in just one sweep”. As discounts on Dyson vacuums are popular, we think this will sell out fast, so add it to your basket now.

They added: “It lasts longer on a single run, is more automated and has more features… In short, the V11 is the crème-de-la-crème of cordless vacs.” It’s a no brainer really.

It performed so well that it took the top spot in our guide, with our tester adding that they “noticed a more luxurious feel” with this bed than with the others they tested. The durability is “outstanding”, so it should last you longer than other mattresses, and “it also gets 10 out of 10 from us on breathability, comfort and support, being just slightly firmer than medium”. It really is “a brilliant all-rounder”.

It has four layers, including foam and springs, and is said to suit all types of sleepers, even those who sleep on their backs – “a notoriously difficult group to cater for”. It’s good news for those who share a bed with a wriggler too, because “the mattress excels at absorbing movement”. What’s more, it’s “durable and breathable” and provides great “pressure relief”.

When does Black Friday end?

11:20 , Eva Waite-Taylor

While lots of brands and retailers kicked things off early, Black Friday officially started today. We’ve already seen some whopping deals on everything from the iPhone 13 pro max to Lego, so there really is something for everyone.

The event runs from Black Friday across the weekend into the following Monday (known as Cyber Monday), which this year falls on 29 November.

Traditionally it has always been exclusively online, and especially so in 2020 due to the pandemic – the UK was mostly under lockdown, with non-essential shops remaining shut throughout November.

Cyber Monday is your last chance to bag a bargain before Christmas, and there’s often a broad range of retailers that slash prices across smart TVs, laptops, fashion, mattresses and more. So, Black Friday ends on Cyber Monday.

“The phrase ‘cult brand’ gets thrown around a lot in the fashion industry, but there truly is no better label than All Saints when it comes to investing in a leather jacket that’s made to last,” as noted in our review of the best leather jackets, where this one took the top spot. “Shaped to a regular silhouette, it’s made from a soft leather and is finished with the typical silver hardware you’d expect from a biker jacket,” they added. Black Friday is the perfect time to invest, you won’t regret it.

All Saints is offering 30 per cent off everything site-wide meaning you can pick up this effortlessly cool leather skirt for less than £70. Earning a spot in our round-up of the best mini skirts, our tester said it has “a classic biker style in a flattering A-line silhouette”, adding that the “two small zips and a longer one down the middle give the skirt just the right amount of edge”. Whether worn fully grunged up with a cropped leather jacket or toned down with a white open shirt and vest, it’s a wardrobe mainstay.

Zara’s Black Friday sale started last night (Thursday 25 November) on the app, offering up to 40 per cent off selected fashion lines, as well as 20 per cent off a range of products at Zara Home. The sale is a big hit each year, so chances are you’re not alone if you missed out on buying your favourite item.

On our wishlist though is this limited edition wool blend blazer (was £100, now £65.40, Zara.com), which is an all-year-round wardrobe staple. But a particular hit this season because chocolate brown is very much in. Similarly, we are coveting this poplin shirt (was £19.99, now £11.99, Zara.com), which we think would look amazing over leather trousers.

Collectively we think they make a nice ear party (if we do say so ourselves).

They offer “the perfect balance of audio quality, features and great pricing”. A no brainer now they cost just £154.

The stoneware dish is oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher safe, and lends itself to baking, roasting and grilling. Plus, the handcrafted cast iron is said to be the lightest you can buy – we’re already fans, with its oval cousin landing top spot in our best casserole dish round-up, where our tester praised the easy-clean enamel interior, and noted: “It’s an obvious choice for casseroles and soups of course, but this dish has also become our go-to when roasting meat for a super-succulent Sunday roast.”

Calling all pet owners, this nifty vacuum is reduced to less than £200 right now. While we’re yet to review this exact model, the similar Dyson V11 animal (£499, Ao.com) took the top spot in our guide to the best pet vacuum cleaners. Our writer praised its weight, which makes it “easy to use all over the home” (the V8 is actually lighter), and its superb suction, clearing up “even the most matted sections of animal hair in just one sweep”. As Dyson’s vacuums are popular, we think this will sell out fast, so add it to your basket now.
