We are a nation in love with takeaways, we spend six billion pounds on them every year and have more places serving them up than anywhere else in Europe.

Brand new series The Best of British Takeaways, a 3 x 60" on BBC Two, is going to be celebrating some of the best. Fronted by Cherry Healey and Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge, they will uncover some of the trade secrets and explore the fascinating social history behind them and three award winning chefs will then take part in a contest to find out what makes the best British takeaway.
