In a race to the finish, the competitiors – who had all raised money for Ashgate Hospice – tucked into a huge burger, wings and sides. Finishing his plate in just 23 minutes was Chris Spencer, who was crowned champion.

Douglas Daniels, who owns the pub, said: “We are going to make it an annual thing. Chris was really steady through the whole thing, and his is the time to beat.”

The event raised £1500 for Ashgate Hospice.
