Woman completes 3ft sausage roll challenge at Fuller’s pub

Challenge eater Kate Ovens managed to consume a sausage roll over half her height at The Red Lion in Barnes, created in honour of Fuller’s sixth annual Great Sausage Roll Off.

Ovens, 23, from Kennington in South London, polished off what is believed to be Britain’s biggest sausage roll.

The seasoned, 5ft 5ins ‘challenge eater’ munched her way through most of the meat-filled pastry in just 10 minutes. Six inches from the end, however, she hit “the wall” and took her final bite around 50 minutes into the challenge.

It was so large that, rather than a small wooden board, it had to be served on a fence post.

Ovens said: “I was so hungry before the challenge, and I got to see them make it in the kitchen which made me even hungrier.

“When it came out of the kitchen served on that fence post, my jaw just dropped. I thought that I’d bitten off more than I could chew”.

The sausage roll contained both pork and black pudding, surrounded by flaky pastry.

Ovens added: “Of all my challenges, this is the one that probably took the longest from start to finish, but I was determined to polish it off.

“Afterwards I felt like being rolled out of the pub”.

Thought to contain 3,750 calories, Red Lion general manager Angus McKean said that they would be offering the giant sausage roll “to some lucky applicants over the next few weeks”.

    Sorry to be a killjoy but with an obesity problem in this country that is reaching epidemic proportions, these sorts of challenges are not really very sensible.

    Dear Killjoy

    People could take _personal responsibility_ and only eat huge portions on special occasions, and take care to get exercise and eat appropriate quantities at other times.
