Yorkshire & Humber have named the kings of British TV as their top dinner date to enjoy a takeaway with.
According to research by Just Eat, commissioned to mark the launch of voting for the British Takeaway Awards, Ant & Dec are the famous duo people from Yorkshire & Humber would most like to share a slice of pizza with. The Geordie duo were closely followed by veteran broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, Her Majesty The Queen, pop princess Beyoncé and supermodel Kate Moss.
Taking loyalty to new lengths, one in five people from Yorkshire & Humber admit the length of time they’ve been ordering from the same local takeaway, exceeds the length of some of their romantic relationships. In fact, data from Just Eat shows that 47 per cent of its customers have stayed faithful and only ordered one type of cuisine for an entire year.
While, the research data revealed the UK’s love and loyalty for their local takeaway is stronger than ever, there is however no love lost when it comes down to sharing. Only a third of men are willing to share their food with friends or a partner while half of women are willing to offer their dishes to others. 24 per cent of people in Yorkshire & Humber are guilty of hogging their poppadoms and spring rolls.
To give Brits a chance to say thank you to the chefs, takeaway owners and delivery drivers that keep them well fed, The British Takeaway Awards is calling for nominations for the best takeaway restaurants in the country.
The British Takeaway Awards, which is run in association with Just Eat, celebrates and recognises the small and often family run businesses that work tirelessly to serve our favourite takeaways. Restaurants go head to head to be awarded the best takeaway restaurants in their region, with one lucky restaurant then going on to win the national prize. There are also awards for chefs and delivery drivers who go above and beyond.
Catch Seafood took home Best Takeaway Yorkshire & Humber at last year’s award ceremony.
Anyone who votes for the British Takeaway Awards will be entered into a draw to win prizes including tickets to The X Factor Live Final, Just Eat vouchers or a £1,000 cash prize.
