LONDON, February 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The phrase 'singing for your supper' is going to become a reality for one lucky chip lover who is going to be munching a plate of chips at their dream destination somewhere in the world - thanks to the launch of 'Chip Factor' by X-Factor's 'singing dustman', Andy Abraham.
To celebrate the launch of National Chip Week 2011, all chip lovers will have to do is sing one of Andy's chip-themed songs in a style that is worthy of 'Chip Factor'!
Top chippies around the country will be hosting 'auditions' to encourage people to sing for their chip suppers whilst queuing for their chips. To find out where your nearest 'audition centre' chip shop is visit http://www.lovechips.co.uk
Andy Abraham said: "We're a nation of chip-lovers - as a nation we like nothing better than a bag of hot, steaming chips. So this competition combines two of Britain's great loves - having a great laugh with our mates and doing something a bit crazy like singing for our chip supper!
The winning entry, voted for by the public, will win the chance to eat a plate of chips anywhere in the world... so someone could be swapping the queue in their local chippie for a bag of romantic chips at the Eiffel Tower, Paris... all they have to do is choose their favourite chip ditty, capture it on film and then upload it on to http://www.lovechips.co.uk.
Here's how to take part:
