The full English breakfast is dying out, according to experts

There's nothing quite like a big breakfast!

Eggs how you like them, bacon, buttery toast, hashbrown, baked beans, mushrooms and tomato... Delicious!

But a new study has discovered that the classic 'fry-up' could die out within the next generation, as almost one in five Brits under 30 have never had a full English breakfast.

According to The Standard, the nationwide survey found that 27 per cent of the 2,000 participants aged 18 to 30 said black pudding was the most unappealing thing about a traditional fry up.

A quarter (24 per cent) of respondents said a fry up was ‘too greasy’ and 42 per cent said it ‘reminded them of men in vests hanging around in transport cafes’.

The greasy bacon, ‘lukewarm’ baked beans and processed sausages were also factors that put young Brits off the classic and 71 per cent of respondents said they would rather have smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, smashed avocado on toast and oatmeal pancakes for breakfast.
