We all love a full English takeout – but one man loves it so much, he went to great lengths to find a great deal.

Ben Matthew Saunders flew from Manchester to Magaluf and had a double full English at the holiday resort for just £14.45.

That’s only £1.95 more expensive than the average price of the standard English fry in the UK.

The 22-year-old boarded the £10 flight on January 28 before taking a free bus to a local cafe in Magaluf to devour the £4.45 (€5) dump.

A breakfast at The Breakfast Club in London will set you back £18.

Ben spent just over £30 in total for the day, which is still cheaper than a full English at London’s Oval Restaurant, priced at £34.

He said: “I was thinking about how things are going in the UK with the cost of living crisis and I wanted to see how far I could take my money.

“I also wanted to show others how they could save money by thinking outside the box.”

His huge brekkie included two sausages, two rashers of bacon, beans, chips, mushrooms, tomatoes, two hashes and a coffee.

He also paid £4 for a train from Preston to Manchester Airport and £12 for a return flight on the same day.

This meant his total cost for the trip was just £30.45 – still cheaper than the more expensive full English breakfast at the Oval Restaurant.

He added: “I didn’t calculate the full cost as I wanted to factor in flights and food.

“I have a railcard so I saved money on the train and it was still so cheap and I went to another country.

“The overall cost is still cheaper than some breakfasts in the UK and shows people that they can save money if they are more creative.

“Even if that means your local store is Waitrose and you get a bus and go further afield to Aldi, it can save you £30, something like that.

“I don’t encourage everyone to go to Spain for breakfast.”

Another man recently flew to Milan for a pizza that was cheaper than Domino’s.
