Randy thanked owners Dave and Dee – and all those tuned in to the live stream – before he made light work of the massive breakfast that 15 people have unsuccessfully tackled before him.

A bowl of potato and leek soup and two glasses of water accompanied the main dish.

But the pro-eater needed two additional diet Cokes to help wash down the giant soda bread he kept until last.

The feat was greeted by cheers and applause from those gathered inside the eatery to lend their support. 

There was no time to waste following the sweet victory which meant Randy ate for free (saving £25) as well as bagging a t-shirt and a coveted spot on the Safari Wall of Fame.

It was time for Katina to step up and take care of dessert.

She completed the pancake stack challenge which consisted of 1.8kg of freshly made pancakes, five bananas, two punnets of strawberries, two punnets of blueberries, a bottle of maple syrup, one litre of whipped cream along with two pints of water.

Katina scoffed the lot in a record time of just over 28 minutes.

"A massive thanks to both Randy and Katina for choosing Safari while on their world food challenges journey," the restaurant posted online.
