Black Friday 2018: Best early deals, including Currys, Amazon and Apple offers

Lela London
Black Friday may not be until November 23, but some retailers have launched tech, kitchenware and beauty deals early

Since the country's Christmas lights prematurely began to line our high streets in late October, many of the shops underneath them chose to go full steam ahead towards the annual Christmas shopping frenzy. Black Friday deals have even been released a week early to entice early shoppers in.

Though the sales event doesn't officially start until the next Friday (November 23) many retailers are already promoting deals worth taking advantage of.

Here are the offers The Telegraph thinks are too good miss - from smart-speakers to smartphones, kitchen gadgets to styling devices.
