Pasty kings Greggs are bringing back the beloved festive bake once again. 

The snack is one of the key signs that Christmas is on the horizon in the UK, along with the John Lewis advert and the Coca-Cola Christmas truck. 

Greggs festive bake will be back in stores up and down the country on Thursday, November 7 – so 20 days from now.

But the company is giving pasty fans the chance to chomp down on the snack a week early. 

Residents in five towns and cities will be able to get their hands on the festive bake from Friday, November 1 – but it is up to superfans to vote to make it happen. 

Greggs has complied a list of 20 places across the country, including Portsmouth, and people can vote to make sure their home gets the pasty early.
