Celebrities You Might See At Nando’s Tonight
You’ve only got until the end of June 30th to claim that half chicken from your paper loyalty card – and you might meet Beyoncé in the rush…
By Tamara Roper
In amongst the tatty loyalty cards you think you’re going to take advantage of, but never do, there is one that needs to be looked at urgently. Chicken fans, you have less than 24 hours to use up your paper Nando’s loyalty stamps, before the shiny plastic cards take over.
Know that you won’t be alone in your plight to cash in your final stamps, because the beauty of Nando’s is that it’s not just for people who like to feel classy when they are essentially ordering fast food. It’s not just a haven for civilians who like a bit of Bamboleo with their Peri Peri. Nando’s is for all.
From the guy who has pledged to visit every Nando’s in the world to One Direction, here are some of the Peri Peri nutters you could be dining next to tonight.
There’s something quite heart warming about a food chain with a GSOH. Whoever controls Nando’s twitter feed (we like to think it’s a rooster with fingers) has a cracking amount of banter. Most recently @NandosUK tweeted the most feral footballer in the world, Luis Suarez, suggesting that instead of digging into human shoulder he should instead think about chowing down on some Extra Hot chicken and chips. Sound advice.
Ed Sheeran and/or Example
Chances are you’re one of the two million people who have witnessed the now infamous ‘Nando’s Skank’. Pre-dating Ed Sheeran’s now internationally recognised fame, the 3-minute cringe fest has to be one of the most awkward videos on the internet. Featuring an ever-cocky Example and a fresh-faced Ed, the two eulogise their love of the restaurant through the medium of a badly constructed freestyle in a car park. Irritatingly, their dedication probably landed them both with Black Cards.
Whilst performing at V Festival last year, Bey pulled in an order that cost over a grand. Apparently ordering 48 whole chickens, 48 portions of chips and 58 chicken wing platters, the £1444.10 order was paid for in CASH MONEY. Naturally. This came after Jay-Z reportedly put a Black Card on his rider at the BRIT awards, which is savvy thinking.
Members of Pop Bands Spawned From Reality TV
Niall Horan is the owner of a Black Card, and Harry Styles tweeted his love for Nando’s way back before his palette became accustomed to fine dining. Little Mix are also fans, which is comforting, because we love girls who champion eating portions of carb-filled goodness.

This is what we mean about Nando’s being the great uniter of taste. Although Dave doesn’t know the price of a loaf of bread and has recently been found guilty of dining at The Chiltern Firehouse, he was snapped in the Bristol branch of Nando’s in May. This only proves that, if nothing else, Nando’s makes equals of us all.

Christopher Poole is a hero. The guy loves Nando’s so much that he has pledged to visit every single restaurant in the world, putting on a stone in weight in the process, and gathering himself over 2000 fans on Facebook. Poole unashamedly takes his Tinder dates to dine on creamy mash and coleslaw, and has spawned a rooster-imitating pose, best pulled with a look of deadly seriousness on his face. A man after our own heart, we salute you Christopher Poole for taking one for the team and forsaking your dignity and possible social life for Nando’s.
