One mum has been absolutely slammed on social media after revealing she charges each family member £30 to enjoy her Christmas dinner.

Gemma Andrews, who is a mum-of-four, explained she's sick of having to organise the festive meal at her own expense.

"The very first year I opened my house to everybody on Christmas Eve I got let down by five people and I had so much excess food."

"The year after I tried 'bring a dish'. Come Christmas Eve, people said 'Oh I forgot to get it' and I'm running around trying to find a bag of prawns. It's more stressful."

"They pay it in November."

Thankfully, Andrews doesn't charge the children.

While some agree with Andrews saying it's a clever way to ensure that everything was even, others slammed her.

"£30 to have Christmas dinner with your family are you crazy!!" wrote one user.

Another said: "£30 a head? £360 for 12 what a greedy mare. It doesn't cost that to do a Christmas dinner."

"Charging 30 quid for your family to come over and have Christmas dinner? I'd drink her wine if I had to pay that," a third added.
