Some French people are as fanatical for fry ups as the British, according to a new hotel food survey.
As many as 19% of French people asked said the English breakfast was the best first meal of the day in hotels, the poll by Hotels.com found.
Overall the traditional English came out as the top type of breakfast in the survey of 2,400 travellers from more than 20 countries, including the UK.
As many as 55% of the Britons polled opted for an English breakfast when staying abroad, with 26% taking traditional breakfast foods away with them.
More than a third (34%) of British travellers admitted taking teabags on holiday, while 8% have taken bacon and 1% have taken brown sauce or tomato ketchup.
When it comes to buffets, 10% of Britons admitted stashing food away to eat later.
Nearly half (47%) the Germans polled said they revisited the buffet for a refill.
The poll also showed that the Germans were the ones having the longest lie-ins, with 31% admitting to regularly missing breakfast, compared with 25% of Britons.
