AN Aldi superfan has gone inside the "most luxurious" branch of the supermarket – but not everyone is impressed.

Now Aldi lover Queen Reen has taken a behind-the-scenes look around the branch, hailing it as the UK's best.

In a TikTok video, she said: "Look what they've gone and built here – a brand-new Aldi!

"And guess what else they've got – they're putting in a Starbucks. Croydon is getting posh, believe."

Taking in the store's exterior, she added: "Oh my gosh, just look at the place, guys. Let's check it out.

The store has wide, gleaming aisles more like a palace than a pound-shop.

Queen Reen picked up some of the Aldi branch's luxury products, including mango mochi and Minis chocolate ice cream.

She said: "Look what I found – why's everything so fake? These are fake Magnums."

Not all shoppers agreed with her rave review of the new Aldi.

One said: "That looks like a normal Aldi to me."

Seb said: "They might have a Starbucks, but you need a Specsavers."

Another said: "Trust me, those fake Magnums are great."

The new Croydon Aldi is some way off being as large as the 19,000 sq ft branch in Louth, Lincolnshire, the biggest in the UK.
