One man, though, claims to know one thing: it's about to make your weekly food shop a lot more expensive.

Justin King, who was chief executive of Sainsbury's between 2004 and 2014, told BBC Panorama that it is 'very clear' British shoppers will face 'higher prices, less choice and poorer quality' once we leave the EU.

"Brexit, almost in whatever version it is, will introduce barriers,' he told the programme.

King added that a rise in prices is the 'last thing' any supermarket boss would reveal.

Great stuff.
