Much-loved delicacies, including a comforting cup of tea and a good old roast dinner, have topped the list of Britain's most popular icons.

Twenty items, including The Beatles and a full plate of fish and chips, were chosen following a poll of 2,000 British adults.

This formed part of The 2016 Britishness Audit, commissioned by Tetley. Along with the food and drink entries, the public also announced its fondness for the BBC, The Royal Family and, of course, forming an orderly queue.

Cassie Shuttlewood, senior brand manager for Tetley, said: "We are proud to see that a cup of tea is high on the list of British icons. Tea is such an iconic part of Britishness, right up there with the Royal Family, James Bond and Big Ben.

"Nothing in the UK starts without a cuppa – and we’d like to invite the nation to raise a cup to celebrate the very best of British!”
