CHIP lovers will be singing for their supper next week when an X-Factor style competition gets underway.
Abbott’s fisheries on Doncaster Road, is one of a number across the country that will mark National Chip Week by hosting the ‘Chip Factor’ competition organised by the British Potato Council.
Customers can go along to the shop to audition for the competition by singing chip-themed songs, which will be judged by the Cheryl Soles of the potato-loving public.
Videos of the auditions will be uploaded to the Potato Council’s ‘Love Chips’ website, and the winning entrant will get to eat a plate of chips in a destination of their choice anywhere in the world to the value of £4,000.
Chris Abbott, 49, who runs Abbott’s Fisheries with wife Jane, said: “We like to do anything we can to support the industry and we thought this would be a good laugh. We might even give it a go ourselves.”
The couple have also pledged to donate 20p from every portion of chips or fish and chips sold to Wakefield Hospice during the event.
