I keep hearing people saying red sauce, it's only recently I've ever heard this....jad ketchup suddenly become a dirty word?!

It’s a local variation. Have you recently moved? I never heard it called ketchup until I went to uni.

I say ‘tomato sauce’.

I’ve never heard it called red sauce. I’d think that was ‘monkey’s blood’ strawberry ice-cream sauce.
