The full English is making a comeback with younger people, a survey found, with over a third of 16 to 34-year-olds eating one once a week or more compared to just a quarter of over 55s doing the same.

The survey, of over a thousand Brits, also shed some light on what the ultimate fry-up should consist of.

The seven most popular items were:


breakfast Ultimate fry up


When it comes to condiments, tomato ketchup was the clear winner with 39 per cent of the vote, compared to 26 per cent who preferred brown sauce. One in 20 respondents said mayonnaise was their go-to condiment for a fried breakfast.

Brown sauce dipped in popularity with young people though – just 12 per cent of Gen Zers (16 to 24-year-olds) said they would choose it, compared to 35 per cent of over 55s.

Tea is the preferred fry-up beverage, chosen by over one-third of people, beating coffee (26 per cent) and orange juice (18 per cent).

The debate of pulp vs. no pulp was also addressed by the survey, which was conducted for hotel group Guoman Hotels, with 61 per cent of orange juice drinkers opting for no pulp.

Remember when we ran a competition to find Britain's Best Pub Breakfast in partnership with Kraft Heinz? The Tap on the Line, in Kew London was the ultimate winner.
