With another lockdown in place across England it’s comfy clothes again for the foreseeable and now B&M is extending that thought to our four legged friends.

The retailer recently shared a picture that it suggested sums up the current mood and many shoppers agreed.

Posting a picture of a cute dog wearing a sloth costume on its Instagram and Facebook pages, the retailer said: “An accurate representation of our #MondayMood! How cute does @girlgainzblog's pup look in his sloth costume?! (SC: 362399, £6). WHO else needed to see this today.”

B&M stores remain open during lockdown and shoppers are allowed to visit stores when needing to buy essential items such as food and medicine.

Shoppers began tagging friends with one saying: “We need these”

Another said: “Chase would look ace in this”.
