MORE home baking has pushed up egg sales during the year, and TV shows have played their part.

Among the supermarkets which have witnessed the rise in sales is Waitrose, where the company has seen a 107% increase in sales of medium sized hen eggs as cookery shows such as Great British Bake Off and Fabulous Baker Brothers encourage more people to bake their own cakes.

Buyer Frances Westerman said: "We've seen a real increase in the number of eggs being sold over the last year.

"It's not just hen eggs either, the huge variety of eggs we stock from duck and quail to ostrich and rhea are all proving popular."
