But eating challenges are nothing new for Kyle who recently became the first person to complete a monster fish and chip shop challenge.

He took on the mammoth "Queeny Special" at Queen Street Fisheries, Morley - and finished the meal with time to spare. 

Contestants are allowed 45 minutes to see off the monster meal, which costs £15 and includes a 32oz serving of battered fish, five portions of chips, six onion rings, two bread buns and two sides - which in Kyle's case, were gravy and beans.

Kyle, who works full-time in the kitchen at The Wild Boar pub in Houghton, said: "I love travelling and attempting big food challenges so when I heard about this challenge I really wanted to give it a try.

If diners finish the plate within the 45 minutes, the meal is free. Kyle finished with around 15 minutes to spare - and even had time to eat the scraps.
