London is set to get a new Gregg's as the nation's favourite bakery opens its flagship Leicester square shop this week.

Opening on Monday, July 18, a blue carpet will welcome customers who attend the opening where they will be able to pose for paparazzi and even bag a freebie. 

With the chance for the first 200 customers to get a free sausage roll or vegan sausage roll along with a glass of fizz. 

The new store opening comes as Greggs fans have been calling for the Leicester Square shop to be opened since the tasty Steak Bake hoarding was debuted this April, officially confirming Greggs’ arrival on the Square.

A Greggs spokesperson said: “The opening of our new flagship shop at 1 Leicester Square will be a huge moment as we continue to expand our presence across prime locations in Central London.
