Greggs is pretty much the best food on earth. I'm pretty gutted about the fact that they don't have all-night ones across the country.

They do in Leeds and - let me tell you - it goes off. Not even a doner kebab beats scoffing down a couple of Sausage, Bean and Cheese pasties when you're half-cut at 3am on a Saturday night.

My point is, before we get started here, let me just get it on that record that I mean no offense when I let you know exactly how much meat there is in your pasties. At the end of the day my view of it is that as long as it tastes good, who gives a shit? - but facts are facts.

So apparently sausage rolls - a staple of the Greggs menu no doubt, but in my view one of the weaker options on the menu - contain 18% pork, which lets be honest, isn't a lot at all.

The iconic Steak Bake - an item so etched into our collective consciousness that during secondary school I had a mate who experienced a reoccurring nightmare that its price would go above a quid (that has now happened, tragically) - contains 32% beef.

And the chicken bake - which I've always thought of in the same way as when someone tells you they have pet tarantula, I mean it's fine - I guess - but I can't help but feel there's probably secretly something a bit off about them because of it - is made of 17% chicken.

A Greggs spokesperson said: "We care passionately about making great quality, delicious tasting food that our customers can enjoy as part of a healthy, balanced diet.

"All the food we make is free from artificial colours, flavours and hydrogenated fats, and has no added trans fats.

"We want our customers to be able to make informed choices and are proud to have been one of the first major food-on-the-go brand providing full traffic light nutritional information on all products via our website."

I'm going to be honest with you, I had a Greggs for breakfast and even after discovering this I have no regrets.
