Spanish movie heart-throb Antonio Banderas is so fond of curry - he ordered the Asian dish to be waiting for him upon arrival at a London airport.

The ZORRO star landed at the British capital's LUTON AIRPORT on Monday (28JUN04) and rushed straight to a Tandoori meal, before travelling to the premiere of Shrek 2.

Banderas had such a craving for the spicy treat, he ordered and paid for over $1,260 (GBP700) worth of food from top London restaurant TAMARIND INDIAN for him and his 40 pals from Madrid before take-off.

Banderas enthuses, "I just love the curry in Britain. It's delicious."
