I bought a Malus domestica Braeburn and a Prunus avium Hedelfinger from Lidl today, will they be ok outside overnight or would it be best to bring them inside incase of frost?

If they came from Lidl, they were probably in plastic bags, and even if not, have been instore or inside for a while. You will need to harden them off before leaving out all the time - do this by leaving them out for a couple of hours in the middle of the day initially, increasing the time you leave them out until, after a week to ten days, they're out all night.

Our local Lidl looks after its plants by a system of benign neglect! Do as Bamboo suggest but give the pots and compost a good soaking.
