A recent survey, carried out by LateRooms.com, revealed that a third of the nation spends fewer than ten minutes on their morning meal.

Even less enjoy a fry-up as their go-to breakfast, despite 40 percent ranking it as their favourite, and only one in ten will indulge at the weekend.

The death of the fry-up has been predicted in East Anglia by 2047, and as early as 2027 in Scotland and Wales.

The most common breakfast choices are cereal, toast and nothing at all.

Behavioural expert Jez Rose, said: 'During the week, many ignore breakfast or give it little time.

'Because breakfast is ignored in the week, when it comes to the weekend, the ingredients aren't there and so the cycle continues.'
