To celebrate the start of Eurovison in Liverpool, food delivery company Deliveroo, has joined forces with Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton and a selection of local Liverpool restaurants to launch 'Deliver-pudlian' menus - phonetically spelt menus to help visitors get down with the lingo.

Hundreds of thousands of tourists are set to descend on the city and research has revealed that Scouse (11%), Scottish (22%) and Geordie (8%) top the list of British accents the nation finds hardest to understand.

Aisha Jefferson at Deliveroo said:Home to some of the world’s best comedians, Liverpudlians have a wicked sense of humour and so do our local restaurants who jumped at the chance to launch the ‘Deliver-pudlian’ menus.”

Where: The ‘Deliver-pudlian’ menus launched in five local restaurants - Big Buns, PICNIC, Renshaw (Nduo Sushi), Spitroast, and Yum Cha - via the Deliveroo app and in-store this week and will run until the Grand Final on 13 May.
