Asda is one of the supermarket giants to start restricting grocery sales, limiting shoppers to buying up to three of the same item
The move is to combat panic-buying induced by the coronavirus pandemic and one of our favourite celebrities has welcomed the move.
Taking to Twitter, the former BBC Breakfast presenter praised the supermarket for their calmer approach to how customers can shop at the moment.
“Impressed with @asda this morn,” the new mum wrote.
“Max purchase of 3 of same product per customer. Busy but calm. Staff really helpful.”

That’s the way to do it.
Asda’s official policy has been updated so that customers will only be permitted to buy up to three of any one product across all food items, toiletries and cleaning products.
Steph’s tweet started a discussion with her fans who are agreeing with the measures and praising the staff working hard to keep shelves filled.
One fan wrote: “That's good. I work full time and can't get to the shops til Saturday. Just hoping I can actually get food!”
While another added: "Same in @asda at Darlington. Plenty of staff about helping people who needed it. Managed my weekly shop and now home with a cuppa.”
Steph and her partner welcomed their first child back in November and while the presenter has been sharing sweet baby updates.
The 38-year-old has also just recently launched her own podcast, Not Bad for Monday.
