Took it it out yesterday mid day and defrosted in the fridge overnight but it's still not properly thawed. I had planned on popping it in the slow cooker but I'm guessing we won't have time to slow cook it now :-/ any ideas how I can defrost I quicker it seems to be the middle part.

I wasn't sure mine would defrost in time in the fridge and read of a method of placing in it cold water, if it's shrink wraped and changing the water every 30 mins.

I left mine in the conservatory overnight and it seems fine, I put it back in the fridge first thing this morning.

Are you able to cut it in half and then stick it in a cool room? I hate it when you follow the defrost instructions and this happens!

Thanks ladies I will try the water first and the see if I can cut it. I would have thought 20ish hours would have been plenty of time to defrost grrr

When I looked it up yesterday it said it could take longer than 24 hours hence my rather unorthodox leaving out of the fridge for a while.

Hope the water works, I read about it in more than one place.
