What do you fancy for lunch? Sushi? A quinoa salad? A butter bean hummus wrap?


It turns out that when it comes to weekday lunching, it's the humble cheese sandwich that reigns.


And boy, do we Brits love a good sandwich. 


So much so that according to a new survey by Lurpak, which researched the eating habits of 2,000 office workers, 32% of us tuck into the same lunch every single day, with the average person having done so for nearly four and a half years.


Translated into meals, that’s 1,000 lunchtime cheese sarnies in a row.


The research, which was commissioned by Lurpak, found that most of us start thinking about lunch around 10am (guilty) and spend an average of £13 a week.


So, what were the runners-up of the lunchtime championships?
