A man has finished one of Oxfordshire’s toughest breakfast eating challenges in record time.

Jack Squires travelled for 90 minutes to get to Bicester Bean Coffee Shop and Café, where he took on what may be Oxfordshire’s biggest eating challenge.

The You-tubing fitness instructor finished the breakfast – which consists of five eggs, five sausages, five rashers of bacon, five tomatoes, five hash browns, five black puddings, five pieces of toast, five portions of beans and five portions of mushrooms – in 12 minutes and 50 seconds.

After finishing, the owner of the café, Aly Clifton, asked Jack if he would like a normal dessert or a challenge dessert.

Jack opted for a challenge dessert.

Upon which Aly went to create a pudding which included 25 pancakes, 25 tiny pancake bites, six hot chocolate brownies, five scoops of ice cream, one and a half bags of marshmallows, strawberries, squirty cream and lots of chocolate sauce.

Jack managed to finish half of this pudding and took the rest home.

Aly said: “I didn’t think he stood a chance. But then he became this quick eating machine.

“He was a skinny boy, if he was more than eight stone, I would have been surprised.

“His time would take some beating and I can’t see anyone doing it myself.”

The breakfast costs £25, including £5 donated to a local cancer charity, but if the challenger can finish the meal within 45 minutes they eat for free.
