The hunt for the UK’s ultimate takeaway fan is on after Just Eat added the mouth-watering category to its annual awards.
Take out fanatics across the country will be able to vie for the award at the fifth annual British Takeaway Awards ceremony in January.
The winner – chosen by celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott – will bag a trip to the country where their favourite takeaway dish hails from and a free takeaway every month for a year.
Favourite local takeaway
Alongside nominating yourself to be in with a chance to be crowned the number one takeaway fan, customers can vote for their favourite local takeaway too.
It comes after a survey found takeaways bring eight in 10 people joyful moments, with six in ten ordering a takeaway to celebrate special occasions.
Birthdays (36 per cent) and romantic occasions such as anniversaries and Valentine’s Day (33 per cent) are the most popular events to mark.
And 15 per cent of Brits order the same takeaway they used to enjoy with their family once a week.
Almost half (47 per cent) have snapped a photo of their takeaway or shared it on social media before tucking in.
More than a quarter (26 per cent) admit to constantly checking the progress of their order on the app in anticipation.
Love and support of our customers
Owner of Brunch (winner of The Best Takeaway in Britain 2018), Sharon Carline said: “We were thrilled to win the best takeaway in Britain last year and we couldn’t have got there without the love and support of our customers.
“It’s an honour that people vote for us so it’s great – and a bit of fun – to see ‘Britain’s #1 Takeaway Fan’ being added as a category this year so our customers can share in the joy too.”
Voting for the British Takeaway Awards and nominations for the ‘Britain’s #1 Takeaway Fan’ category are now open until Friday 20th September: https://vote.thebtas.co.uk/
