Deliveroo has seen its order numbers continue to swell, despite shoppers adding fewer dishes to baskets on the other side of Covid lockdowns.

In interim results published on Tuesday, the food delivery titan said growth in orders stood at 18 per cent year-on-year.

Orders hit 82.4m in the first quarter of the year, up on 69.6m last year.

Gross transaction value (GTV) per order dropped seven per cent, with an average spend of £21.7. This was compared to tough comparatives in the first quarter of 2021 when customers were not dining out amid lockdowns and spent an average of £23.2.

GTV jumped 11 per cent to £1.7bn, compared to the first quarter of 2021.
