Supermarket Asda has created the UK's first edible house using 1,200 mince pies, 75kg of parmesan, 30 lobsters, 35kg of smoked salmon and 3,000 sprouts.

Standing at three-and-a-half metres tall and two-metres wide, the feature took a 10-strong team 84 hours to build and also includes a prosecco wishing well.

To make the house, which was on display at Taste of London: Festive Edition, the supermarket used test products shared by suppliers and items that were close to their sell by date.
