Line of Duty Belfast Vicky McClure

 Actress Vicky McClure, fresh from filming the latest series of the BBC crime drama, ‘Line of Duty’ in Northern Ireland, has declared that Tayto Cheese and Onion crisps are the reason why she fell in love with Belfast

Vicky, who also recently starred as Paula in BBC’s tense drama, The Replacement, was talking on Graham Norton’s Radio Two show on Saturday 25 March.  She declared her love for Tayto’s iconic Cheese and Onion variety, saying they are the reason ‘why I fell in love with Belfast’.  She also commented that Tayto crisps are ‘better than Walkers’, with ‘more taste’, ‘more flavour’ and ‘better texture’.  Graham Norton added that he thought Tayto was a great name for crisps with Vicky agreeing wholeheartedly.

Elly Hunter, marketing director for Tayto, adds:  “We are delighted to hear that both Vicky McClure and Graham Norton are the latest celebrity fans to declare their love for Tayto.

“We make more than one million packets of crisps every working day at Tayto Castle in Tandragee and Cheese and Onion remain our most popular flavour, making up one in every five packets of crisps eaten in Northern Ireland.

“Our crisps are also exported to 44 countries and the ‘Taste of Home’ reaches as far as America, Jamaica and Vietnam so you never know where you might spot them or, with our growing number of celebrity fans, who might be eating them!”

Tayto is a part of Tayto Group Ltd, which is the UK’s largest, indigenous crisp and snack manufacturer, producing more than five million bags a day across its six sites.  The company remains family-owned, with its headquarters in Co Armagh, and has a portfolio of some of the UK’s most iconic snack brands, including Tayto, Golden Wonder, Real Crisps, Mr Porky, Jonathan Crisp and Portlebay Popcorn.
