Swansea has been revealed as the cooked breakfast capital of Britain.

New research indicates that one in ten people in the Welsh city enjoy a full fry-up every day. Close on Swansea’s heels for the cooked breakfast crown was Aberdeen, in Scotland, and then Leeds in third place.

The survey, which was taken by 2,000 people across the country, showed that the English fry-up has beaten the more traditional “treat meals” – such as Sunday roast, curry or fish and chips – to claim the top spot as our favourite.

A quarter of the people surveyed by Hilton Garden Inn rated a cooked breakfast as their first choice of meal. Nearly 30 per cent admitted to eating at least one cooked breakfast a week.

The result also revealed that although the UK may have become more Americanised in many of our eating habits (please see maple syrup and bacon pancakes) a good English brew was still the drink of choice with our breakfast.

Just under 40 per cent of people drink tea, compared to 33 per cent who prefer coffee, with their first meal of the day.

Finally, most people would like to have breakfast with footballer David Beckham – expect in the north-east where singer Cheryl Fernandez-Versini clearly has some fans.
