Kyle, who works as a chef at the Wild Boar Wetherspoon in Houghton, said his effort saw him take first place, with the second place contestant managing 12 Yorkshire puddings.

He said: “The contest was great and I really enjoyed taking part in it.

“I found it hard to get into a rhythm at the start as they are weird to eat but after the first minute I got into it.

Kyle Gibson has completed a new challenge.

“I plan on doing loads more contests in the future.”

But Kyle is no stranger to warming up ahead of a challenge, with the super eater known to ‘train’ his stomach by having a large meal 16 to 24 hours before.

Kyle said: “Before the challenge my sponsor said; ‘lets go through the McDonald’s drive-thru and order 30 cheese burgers and some chips for a photo’.

Kyle Gibson has won the Yorkshire Pudding Challenge.

“I didn’t want to waste any, so I thought I would do a challenge there and then to eat as much as I could in two minutes.

“I managed to eat five cheese burgers and gave the rest of them to the staff.”
