The BBC Breakfast co-host posted a photo of a restaurant menu that appeared to have been taken through a window and captioned it: "I'm not sure what causes more distress… the 'fruit selection' for £13 or the 8 quid chips! #LondonPrices."

The post soon attracted hundreds of comments, with one fan responding with a laughing emoji as they wrote: "I think the £20 club sandwich hit me most."

Another chimed in: "Nope it's the £4 bread roll… WHAT... that means a chip butty would be £12… it's unbelievable really, London or not, it's still a bread roll."

Dan got fans talking with his latest post

Although the star was born in Sussex, he went on to study at the University of Sheffield and has now settled back in the city with his family.

The 44-year-old has to travel to London more frequently at the moment, however, because he is starring on the current series of Strictly, where he and his dance partner Nadiya Bychkova have a devoted fan following.

Dan and Nadiya are fan favourites on Strictly 

Dan's co-stars recently rallied to support him after newspaper reports suggested viewers were "baffled" to see him still taking to the dancefloor on Saturday nights.

Dancer Katya Jones, who was recently eliminated along with her partner Adam Peaty a couple of weeks ago, wrote: "Dan! You are brilliant and deserve so much respect for your commitment. Together with Nadiya you are putting in so much work, no less than anyone else. Bringing millions of people joy every single week. Will be supporting you all the way."
