FILE Andrew Marshall has created a battered Christmas dinner at his Fish and Chip shop in Cullompton, Devon. A festive chip shop owner has gone one batter than his rivals - and created a deep fried full Christmas dinner. See SWNS story SWFRIED. Andrew Marshall serves a poultry leg, battered sprouts, carrots, pigs-in-blankets and stuffing - all battered. There's also a gravy bomb and a mince pie to finish it off - which are also fried. The festive takeaway totals an artery-clogging 1,100 calories but is relatively light on the wallet at just ??9.95.

Brits love a good fry up, dont we? We know its unhealthy and we shouldnt be chowing down on so many fried goods, but its just a national staple (it is called a full English, after all).

But were probably not used to seeing our beloved Christmas meal in fried form. Thats exactly what one Devon chippy is offering; poultry leg, sprouts, carrots, pigs-in-blankets, and stuffing – all battered.

Theres also a gravy bomb and a mince pie to finish it off – which are also, you guessed it, fried.

Andrew Marshall, 35, runs chippie, Marshalls Fish Bar in Collumpton, Devon, and is offering the Christmas treat ahead of the festive season.

After some thought, we decided to launch the Chipmas dinner again because it seemed to work so well last year, he said.

The reason I came up with the idea is because my staff says I am a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas so I thought why not come up with something different?

I started with just the battered Brussels sprouts, then the pigs in blankets, and then I thought why not serve an entire Christmas dinner?

The battered Christmas dinner will start with a fried chicken leg, sprouts, carrots and pigs in blankets.

We will then take an ice cube of gravy, surround it in mash potato, cover it in breadcrumbs and then fry it.

We will also either deep fry the stuffing or cover it in batter and fry it. And for dessert, we will either try battered Christmas pudding or mince pies.

And as with a lot of other fast foods, the meal is also relatively light on the wallet at just £9.95.

If you are interested in getting your hands on the grub, bear in mind, the festive takeaway totals 1,100 calories, just under half of your recommended daily intake if youre a man, and over half if youre a woman.

According to the NHS, within a healthy, balanced diet, a man needs around 2,500kcal a day to maintain his weight. For a woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal a day, which vary according to age, metabolism, and levels of physical activity, etc.

Enjoy, and eat responsibly, people.
