Beyoncé spends more than R20 000 at Nando's


Beyoncé spent nearly £1 500 (R24 000) on flame-grilled chicken after her performance at V Festival on Saturday.

The singer appears to have worked up a big appetite following her headline slot at the annual music festival ? which was held at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex ? as she splashed out £1 444,10 (R23 105,60) on tasty peri-peri chicken from Portuguese-style South African restaurant chain Nando's.

The 31-year-old star, who’s known for her love of the restaurant, put in a massive order for her and her entourage, which included 48 whole chickens, 580 spicy wings, 48 portions of chips, 24 tubs of coleslaw, 24 helpings of spicy rice and 12 vegetable burgers.

A manager at a Chelsmford branch of Nando's confirmed to BBC News a member of Beyoncé's entourage made the order and according to a receipt, which was posted on Twitter, the four-figure bill was paid entirely in cash. The singer loves to treat herself to succulent chicken from the restaurant chain when she’s in the UK, but her latest order tops the £740 (R11 840) she racked up in Nando's when her Mrs Carter Show world tour visited Dublin, Ireland, in May. The generous star helped herself and her tour crew to 28 whole chickens and plenty of sides ? including chips, corn on the cob and garlic bread ? following her concert at Dublin's The O2. - Bang Showbiz
