The store has started selling pots of chip shop scraps – and they’re on sale at £1 each.

Anyone who’s ever set foot inside a chippy will now more often than not you’ll be asked: “Do you want scraps?” – which to many is chip shop heaven.

M&S is now selling tubs of chip shop scraps.

So if you’re after an authentic chip shop tea from M&S, you won’t be disappointed as you can now sprinkle on their own brand of scraps.
