Gloria Hunniford, Angela Rippon and Julia Somerville investigate the truth about our food. The team test out the hygiene standards at some of Britain's biggest names.

Angela Rippon, Gloria Hunniford and Julia Somerville test out the hygiene standards at some of Britain's biggest names. There are some shocking discoveries once the samples are taken to the lab. So which catering establishments didn't come up to scratch? And is enough being done to ensure that places we eat in that are scoring lowest for hygiene clean up their act? Also, the trend for restaurants to serve their burgers pink, and why the concerns and rules on that are so much more pronounced in Scotland. Plus the confusing and sometimes pretentious wording on menus is made clear.

Rip Off Britain: Food - Monday April 25th

The initial broadcast of our item on the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme incorrectly stated that that our researchers visited KFC after this particular branch had been reinspected and given the maximum 5 out of 5 rating. 

Our visit in fact took place in February and predated the branch receiving its new rating, following a re-inspection by local Environmental Health Officers in March 2016.
