A mere glimpse of sunshine, no matter how watery, and most of us immediately think "ooh, it's BBQ weather". Or "I must have friends over for drinks".

Followed by "must buy furniture for people to sit on".

As if they could read our minds, Aldi has come up trumps with its biggest ever, outdoor furniture set - the Gardenline Lounge and Dining Set. NB: it's online only.

While Aldi says the set is comfortably able to seat six people, we think at a push you could definitely fit a few more on for your summer soirée.

It's wow-factor comprises of one long corner sofa - and if we know anything about Aldi, it's that they know a thing or two when it comes to this design. It's Anthracite Corner Sofa, which our editors rave about, has already sold out as customers scrambled to get their hands on the budget-friendly design.

Meanwhile, the new, larger set, is similar to Aldi's most-wanted modern four-seater rattan set for four that has only just become available to pre-order for 2022 after being a bestseller last year.

If you love hosting summer BBQs or are a large family, the chic new Gardenline Lounge and Dining Set could be for you.

As well as the stand-out sofa, the set include two ottomans (tip: you can also use these to rest your feet on while lounging on the sofa), and a glass-topped coffee table - which cleverly rises up or down for ease of use.

The furniture is powder-coated - meaning it's more durable and the paintwork won't chip or wear off. And the grey wicker with cream cushion combo will smarten up any outdoor space.

One happy customer notes "for the money, it looks lovely, it’s comfortable and it has weathered really well - ours has been outside all winter and is still looking as good as new."

Prefer to be safe than sorry? We hear you. Aldi also recommend covering your furniture to protect it from adverse weather conditions.

Never fear, Aldi also sells this brilliant cover-up to keep your furniture pristine and party-ready. It's water-resistant, PEVA coated (which is non-toxic type of vinyl and a good alternative to PVC), and comes with a drawstring and clip.

But if anything does go wrong with your Gardenline Lounge and Dining Set, you can rest easy because it comes with a 36-month warranty.

Now all you need to do is get the invites out, get the Sauvignon on ice and pray to the weather Gods that the sun comes out and stays out.

Though given how stoical we Brits are, it's likely we'll brave the summer showers and huddle under umbrellas pretending we're not cold. (Note to self: invest in some outdoor blankets, too...)
