A hungry driver left fellow motorists in a flap after driving Nando, who was waiting in line for petrol, to his car.
40-year-old Lily Potkin was stuck in the “mother of all queues” for two hours due to a fuel crisis, when she realized she needed to fill her tank.
He decided to take advantage of his stable position and ordered Nando’s Chicken Wrap and Peri-Peri Chips from Deliveroo for his car.
The pictures show Lilly’s delivery driver giving her a thumbs up as she drops items from the window of her car.
The mum-of-three can be seen smiling as she tucks into her grilled chicken pitta after a nervous wait in the garage in Harrow, north west London.
She said: “It was really funny. The people behind me saw her giving it and the mood changed.
“Everyone was really upset and then I saw everyone behind me break down. They were just in a frenzy.”
Lily had gone to the petrol pump at lunch today to get fuel to run the school.
But she panicked seeing the long queue of cars as the drivers tried to fill up wildly amid the ongoing chaos.
After waiting an hour, to go to one side of a detour, the mother’s mind soon changed for lunch.

She said: “Everything inside me was saying ‘go home you idiot’ because I was so hungry as I sat there.
“Traffic was moving so slowly so I thought I might get a deliveru where I was.
“I put the delivery pin a little further down the road and he pulled it right outside my window.”
Lily’s aunt, who lives nearby, left more snacks as she sat in the queue.
She eventually made it to the forecourt after a two-hour wait – but then got stuck behind a driver who poured the wrong fuel into her car.
The Mum thankfully managed to get £35 worth of fuel under the new petrol cap restrictions, but said it was like the “Hunger Games”.
Upon her arrival at her home, Lily posted a thread on Twitter documenting the delivery of her Nando – with users dubbing her a “genius”.
One said: “You are an absolute hero! Nando, your lovely aunt and well done on Patrol X”
Another wrote: “Fantastic! Well done to finally get the fuel! Loved Nando and Chachi’s food delivery – Absolute genius”
While one person said: “Lily this is fantastic.”
It comes as Britain’s petrol pump chaos enters its fifth day, panicked drivers queue to refill overnight and Boris Johnson puts the military on standby to steer tankers.
