Londoners spend more than £2600 on takeout each year, a survey found.

Almost three quarters (70 per cent) of residents in the capital eat junk food up to four times a week - with 1 in 10 even eating daily, a poll by Ninja Kitchen UK found.

Londoners are also the biggest spenders in the UK and splash a staggering £43 on meals from delivery services and fast-food outlets each week, according to the survey.

Those in the South West consume the least amount, with around two thirds (65 per cent) eating fast-food once or twice a month at an average spend of just £18 a week.

Almost half of people living in London (45 per cent) spend more on takeaways than they did pre-pandemic, the findings revealed.

Chinese cuisine and British food such as fish and chips were voted as the most popular takeout options.

Jess Levy, SharkNinja Vice President of Marketing EU, said: It’s been fascinating to see what the nation’s fast-food habits are!

“Frequently eating fast food is clearly a habit that lots of people want to break, which is why we’re on a mission to prove that healthy cooking doesn’t have to be boring or time consuming – like many people think!

“Ninja Kitchen’s range of appliances make it quick and easy to prepare delicious, healthy food, whether you’re cooking for yourself, entertaining friends, or feeding a hungry family.

“We hope that our research findings shine a light on the benefits of home cooking and inspire people to try it themselves.”
