With the average Brit set to consume 7,000 calories on Christmas day, it comes as no surprise that the traditional British Christmas dinner has been ranked the fattiest and unhealthiest in Europe.

A new survey has revealed that our typical festive lunch on December 25 contains 69g fat and 211g of carbohydrates, that's 42 per cent saturated fat and 30 per cent sugar.

On the other end of the spectrum is France, which tops the healthy league table with its menu full of unprocessed foods.

And my choices are Italian women, German cars, Mexican food and Irish music.

7,000 calories for the day is insane. Watching somebody stuff their faces like that is a turnoff, let alone doing it oneself.
