They will also tuck away 375 burgers, 312 portions of fish and chips and 92 hot dogs.

It's been reported that not only has the vegetable ripened three weeks earlier than usual -- but they are also bigger than ever before.

Mild weather conditions have meant that the typical Brussels Sprout will this year weigh 25g compared to the usual 20g and is even more flavoursome.

A spokeswoman for the Love Your Greens campaign group said: "The mild dry weather has been really good for the crop and helped produce very high quality sprouts."
