We’re on the hunt for the best fish and chip shop that the Five Towns has to offer.

Your Express needs YOU to tell us which chippys batter the competition in the race to be the best in the business. Why should your favourite be crowned the champion?

It couldn’t be simpler to get your nominations in. All you need to do is fill in the entry form in this week’s paper nominating your favourite chip shop. You can also email us, visit our Facebook page or tweet us.

If you’re feeling really brave and are as tech-savvy as your average 13-year-old, you might even fancy filming your family tucking in - that we’d love to see.

Whether you’re the mighty fish frier himself, or a regular at the counter, this is a great opportunity to get your chippy’s name in lights.

Once the nominations have all landed in our net, we’ll compile a shortlist of the most popular submissions.

Our chippy champions will then equip each and every shortlisted business with all they need to compete for the coveted title - including the obligatory ‘We Need YOU!’ poster.

It will then be over to you to decide who is the best, and of course that means having to sample a few bags - all in the name of research, of course!

So what are we looking for? Well succulent fish and cracking chips bought by a loyal customer base are a minimum requirement.

But of course, it doesn’t end there: chippys have broadened their horizons so it might be that you want to give credit for something else!

A tasty kebab and chips. The perfect pie and chips. A succulent sausage and chips. You get the gist!

Look out for details of how YOU can vote for your number one when all the entries are in and have been compiled.
