One of the UK's top competitive eaters has destroyed the country's biggest breakfast challenge – and gobbled an extraordinary 8,000 calories in a mere eight minutes.

Birmingham-born Leah Shutkever – who claims to hold a staggering 27 Guinness World Records – complete the Bicester Bean's huge food challenge last month.

She managed to eat of five eggs, five sausages, five rashers of bacon, five tomatoes, five hash browns and five black puddings, as well as five pieces of toast, five portions of beans and five portions of mushrooms.

And she did it all in just eight minutes and two seconds, smashing the Oxfordshire café's previous record of 12 minutes and 50 seconds, which was set just two weeks prior.

Leah, who is also a YouTube star, said: "The previous record was so good it made me nervous – I really wanted to beat it.

“It was a difficult challenge for the time scale that I had to eat it in – it was a huge bowl and there were a lot of beans!

“It certainly wasn't the biggest I've done – but it was challenging.

“I once did a 41 piece mega breakfast that was absolutely enormous – but it's all part of the job!"

Aly Clifton, owner of the restaurant, said he was “shocked” by how quickly Leah beat the challenge, and was also “blown away with how slim she is, how she made it look so easy and how lovely she is”.

Some of the other challenges Leah has completed involve consuming 20 chicken nuggets in one minute, and eating an entire Terry's Chocolate Orange in 57 seconds.

Leah exercises everyday and has been working full-time as a professional competitive eater for two years.

Despite the niche profession, she said: “There was a time when my brother and I were working out a lot, and we would have a cheat meal once a week.

"My brother would be doing these crazy eating challenges every week, and he would come back home all glum saying he had failed – every time!

"I just remember being absolutely baffled – we are known for being big eaters in our family.

"So, I decided to try one of the challenges he couldn't complete – a massive dessert challenge – and I set a ridiculous record of six minutes.

"The challenge had been undefeated until I did it and I can assure you I was as surprised as everyone else.

“It's been a long old while since my first challenge of me trying to avoid this becoming my job.”
