You'll soon be able to get your entire week's food shop delivered to your door within an hour of putting your order in online in nine cities across the UK.

That's after Morrisons expanded its deal with Amazon - where supermarket staff fill out your order in store and Amazon gets the shopping to you.

"Customers can order a full Morrisons shop online, which is then picked at a local Morrisons store, and delivered by Amazon,"  the supermarket said.

"The option for delivery within one hour of the order being placed is available for many customers across these cities."

At the moment this "ultra fast" option is only available to Amazon Prime customers in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, and parts of London and the Home Counties.

But by the end of the year more people will be able to access it.

"During 2019, this ultra-fast same day service will begin to be rolled out to other cities, including Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool, Sheffield and Portsmouth," Morrisons said.

"In future years, the Morrisons store on Prime Now will be expanded to further cities across the UK."

The change is part of an expansion of the supermarket's partnership with Amazon, announced during Morrisons' interim results.

But it's not just Amazon Prime customers who will see more home delivery options - with customers now able to get food sent to their homes in both the most northerly and southerly parts of Great Britain.

"We are rolling out plans to serve online customers more widely," the store explained.

"Morrisons.com will still grow for new customers both by adding new store-pick capacity, and by increasing orders through the Dordon CFC.

"During the first half, we added several store-pick stores for Morrisons.com, extending our online catchment to new areas including Falkirk and Dundee in Scotland, and parts of Devon, Cornwall and the North-West in England."
