Rylan reveals what happens to the fresh food on Supermarket Sweep

Rylan's going wild in the aisles

All the fresh food used on Supermarket Sweep is donated to food banks, host Rylan Clark-Neal has revealed.

Rylan is hosting a revamped version of the beloved 90s game show with Tesco providing all the products for the studio recreation of one of their stores.

The host has now assured fans that all the perishable produce you see on screen goes to the people who need it – for free.

In an interview on ITV daytime show This Morning, he spilled: “One thing that is amazing, and I want to make sure people know, is that every few days we donate all the foods to food banks.

“For TV purposes we want it to be looking pristine but there’s still three, four, five weeks on that fresh produce so we donate it.

“All the food is real, we replenish it every three or four days and all of the products that are perishable, but still best before, they don’t go to waste.”

Rylan loved walking around the store himself during filming as it made him feel like a supermarket manager and he has joked that the best thing about being the host is that he gets to steal stuff for his cupboards at home.

He quipped: “I love it, I’m on the rob left, right and centre – I haven’t been shopping for weeks. It’s fantastic. It’s real stuff, I’m in hairspray for life.”
