The blanket also comes in a kingsize which costs £22.99 and uses 120W.

According to Uswitch it costs just 24p to run a 100W electric blanket for one hour a day for seven days.

And if you were to use an electric blanket for one hour a day, every day of the week for a year, it would cost you £12.48 in total.

That means both blankets will keep you cosy during the winter months for less than if you had your radiator on.

This is the cheapest heated blanket we found for this size.

On the Daewoo website itself it has the double listed for £23.99, and Currys is selling the same for this price too.

Of course other blankets are available but we couldn't find any for cheaper than Home Bargains' price.

Dunelm is selling the Russell Hobbs Electric Under Blanket comes in at £32 for a double bed.

Lidl has been selling the Silentnight Comfort Control Electric blanket for £24.99 for a double as one of its middle aisle deals, which means it won't be around forever.

As always, make sure to compare prices online using handy tools like Google shopping.

If you're ordering online remember to factor in delivery costs.

Also, when it comes to heated blankets do bear in mind the number of watts each uses as this will change how much it costs to run and how warm it'll get.

We've listed the cheapest blankets available right now here from retailers including Argos, Currys, Dunelm, Lidl and The Range.
