When it comes to Christmas dinner we've all got our favourites, and according to a recent survey conducted by ASDA, some foods are much more preferred than others.

Christmas is the perfect time to pile your roast dinner plate high with all your favourite festive treats, from Yorkshire puds to pigs in blankets, and roast potatoes to Brussel sprouts, but some choices are much more popular than others.

A recent survey of 2,000 Brits conducted by ASDA revealed that the classic roast potato takes the top spot over a traditional roast turkey, stuffing and even Christmas pudding.

According to the budget supermarket, on average Brits will tuck into their first mince pie on 29th November, will have purchased their first Christmas present 20th November and will start embracing the festivities on 5th December.

An ASDA spokesman said: 'Christmas is one of those occasions that doesn't need messing with too much.

'We've done our best this year to make traditional favourites that little bit more special and have won numerous awards for things like our new recipe mince pies, cranberry sauce and festive turkey – all key components for the perfect Christmas.'
