Ketchup is no longer Britain's favourite condiment

Ketchup has lost its place as the nation's favourite condiment, according to a new study.

The UK now prefers the spicier sauce of sriracha rather than the classic tomato ketchup as a compliment to their meals.

Sriracha is a type of hot sauce that's made up of chilli peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt and has far more of a kick than more conventional condiments such as mayonnaise and mustard. It has pushed tomato sauce down into second place on the list.

The study was conducted by exante who broke down the results by location. It found that the biggest lovers of sriracha can be found in Glasgow, Cardiff, Northampton, Wolverhampton and Bournemouth.

Ketchup, mayo and Worcester sauce reigned supreme in areas of northern England such as Hull, Bolton and Bradford respectively.
