Ashwell fitness instructor smashes 8,000-calorie food challenge ‘for fun’ – then asks for massive dessert

A Hertfordshire fitness instructor has managed to eat one of Britain’s biggest breakfasts in record time – and still had room for dessert. Fitness instructor and comedian Jack Squires, 28, from Ashwell in Hertfordshire, is a YouTuber who is keen to break stigmas by completing food challenges, sometimes up to one a week.

This challenge, at Bicester Bean Coffee Shop and Café in Oxfordshire, saw Jack down the meal – which contains around 8,000 calories – in 12 minutes 50 seconds. The epic breakfast comes with five eggs, five sausages, five rashers of bacon, five tomatoes, five hash browns and five black puddings.

It is also served with five pieces of toast, five portions of beans and five portions of mushrooms. The owner of the independent cafe, Aly Clifton, then asked Jack if he would care for a normal dessert – or a dessert challenge.

She handed him a pudding made up of 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 his pudding – and had to take the rest home.

Jack said: “It was definitely the experience of a lifetime. Aly was brilliant and the cafe is such a lovely place – this is probably one of the best challenges I’ve done! I was blown away by the meals, everything was delicious.”

The fitness guru started competing in these food challenges just under a year ago, Jack explained: “It’s something I do for fun. Me and my pal did one for a laugh and then I found out I had somewhat of a talent for it!

“So I started uploading my videos to my YouTube – Squires Inspires – and people love them. After suffering with an eating disorder myself, I hope to inspire people and change they way they look at eating.

“One unhealthy meal is not going to ruin your progress. I say everything in moderation – including moderation”. Despite the sizeable meal, Jack says he “always eats the next day” and never starves or over-exercises to make up for his calories consumed.

Jack added: “I was really not expecting what came out as the dessert – I just remember casually asking for the menu and the next thing I know I’ve got 25 pancakes and six brownies on my plate! I certainly gave it my best shot and hope to come back soon”.

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.
