Super eater set for food battle on TV

Kyle, who works as a chef at the Wild Boar Wetherspoon in Houghton, has taken part in numerous food challenges across the UK.

Such eating challenges have even seen him travel to Northern Ireland where he took part in the Big O Pizza Challenge which saw him demolish a 32.5 inch onion and ham pizza in a record of just 23 minutes 48 seconds.

Kyle started competitive eating four years ago and said he has hopes to travel around America taking part in numerous challenges.

Kyle said: “Taking part in the documentary has been one of the best things I have ever done.

“I hope people really enjoy watching it as there are lots of good moments.

“I hope it will be informative and show people what competitive eating is all about.”
