Calling all wine lovers!

Aldi is looking for a number of wine tasters to test and review its new range of wines — yes, that’s right!

If you enjoy a glass of vino to compliment your dinner or to take the edge off after a tough day at work, and you fancy yourself a bit of a wine connoisseur, this could be the perfect job for you. Aldi is on the lookout for a selection of wine experts to sample and review its new range of wines — you can even take home some free bottles of the good stuff.

The budget supermarket is preparing for wine season again and is now looking for 30 wine samplers to taste its new line and give honest feedback. Those who are lucky enough to be recruited will be sent three bottles of wine and will be tasked with drinking it within a six-week period.

The wine samplers will be asked to review a selection of Aldi’s new wines via social media by using the hashtag #AldiWineClub on their Instagram and Twitter pages. The best part about it is the wine is completely free, so if you enjoy drinking fermented grape juice then this could be the perfect calling for you.


Each bottle of wine will come with tasting notes from Sam Caporn, Mistress of Wine and head of the Aldi Wine School. She will also include some expert tips on how to taste the wine properly — so you’ll even become a bonafide wine expert by the end of the experience.

So how do you apply to be a wine taster for Aldi? It’s quite simple and straightforward, all you need to do is send an email to aldiwineclub@clarioncomms.co.uk. In the email you will need to add your full name, proof of age and follower handles, plus your follower counts.

You’ll also need to convince them that you’re the right person for the job in a 150 word covering letter about which of the supermarket’s wines is your favourite and why. To be fair, it’s just a small price to pay and minimal effort in exchange for some free bottles to drink.


The job description on Aldi’s website says: “Are you a wine enthusiast? Do you have a nose for aromas and impeccable tastebuds? Or simply want the opportunity to try some FREE wines?

“We are looking for thirty vino-loving superstars to make up our latest Aldi Wine Club panel – an exclusive group of Aldi shoppers with a passion for wine. All you’ll be tasked with is reviewing each wine via a 140-character tweet or Instagram post using the dedicated #AldiWineClub hashtag– it’s as simple as that!”

As you’ve probably guessed, you’ll need to be over 18 to apply for a chance to be selected for a position in the Aldi Wine Club and, if you’re an Aldi employee or you’re related to one, then that counts you out too.

Applicants have until Monday March 13th to register their interest – we have a feeling this one will fill up pretty quickly so act fast and give it your best shot.

A dad accidentally bought 60 pairs of reading glasses after misreading an order.

The dad has gone viral on Twitter for his massive order of reading spectacles. He was left baffled as to why the parcel was so full when it arrived at his address on Sunday March 26th, leaving his son in stitches.

Tom Arnold, 61, from Perranporth in Cornwall, thought he’d only ordered one pack to share with his wife — not a whole shop’s worth. Radio and podcast host, Chris Arnold could not stop laughing as he witnessed his dad open the parcel with a bewildered look on his face.

The viral tweet read: “My Dad has accidentally bought 60 pairs of reading glasses off the internet after misreading the quantity of his order.”

Speaking about the mishap, Chris said: “I just found it hilarious, he said he thought the packaging was excessive, then he opened it up and the box was full.

“He seemed confused as to what had happened. We looked at the order and he had ordered 12 packs instead of one, as they were for him and my mum, plus spares. The order came to over £100 but he’s managed to get a refund!”

He described the incident as ‘very funny indeed’, saying it ‘cheered up’ him and his family. As the tweet went viral and accumulated thousands of likes, Specsavers jumped in on the banter as they tweeted: “Do we even need to say it?”

Chris joked in reply: “At this point guys, I don’t think you do. P.S. Are you interested in buying 59 pairs of reading glasses off my dad?”

They hilariously replied: “If you can’t shift them you might want to consider adding an extra 118 eyes to your dad’s face.”

Specsavers tweeted an update on the situation: “The glasses have been safely returned, but Chris’ dad deserves a bit of good luck. How about a free eye test and a brand-new pair of glasses for good measure?

“You really should’ve gone to Specsavers.”

BBC & Adidas

A ‘fit as a fiddle’ charity runner, 85, from Greater Manchester has been chosen to be one of the faces of a new Adidas advert.

Barbara Thackray, a grandmother from Altrincham, runs 10k twice a week to keep fit. She has been chosen — alongside the likes of Liverpool footballer, Mo Salah, Qatari hurdler Mariam Farid and Egyptian runner Khadija Hegazy in the new TV and YouTube advert — as one of the faces of to feature in it.

The retired college lecturer took up running eight years ago, aged 77, to raise funds for St Ann’s Hospice in Heald Green, Stockport.

She has been raising money for the hospice since her sister died there in the 1990s.

She said she watched the new advert ‘on a little screen’ and it was ‘fine’, adding: “So long as they were prepared to make a significant donation to St Ann’s Hospice, I felt ok about it.”

Ms Thackray has raised over £20,000 for St Ann’s Hospice in just a few short years, having been a champion of the organisation for over 10 years — including during her sister’s illness and eventual passing.

She’s not planning on stopping running any time soon.
