Olivia Colman has revealed that a fish and chip shop in Norfolk is her favourite place to get the British staple.

The 49-year-old actress, who was born in Norwich, has appeared in a video with British Vogue where she reviewed bangers and mash, sticky toffee pudding and four other British dishes. 

During the video, the Oscar winner took a moment to mention a popular north Norfolk fishing town while chomping down on a battered fish.

"The best fish and chips is French's on Wells Quay," she said after trying the seafood.

Colman - who has appeared in TV shows such as Peep Show and Broadchurch, as well as movies including Murder on the Orient Express and The Favourite - went to Norwich High School for Girls and Gresham's School in Holt.

She credited early trips to Cinema City as being a "game-changer" for the budding young actress.
