NEWS: You may find this pie eating story hard to swallow (groan).
The annual World Pie Eating Championships in Wigan ended in controversy.
Results were declared null and void after a work experience chef sent the wrong pies to competition venue Harry's Bar, organisers said.
Former champion Barry Rigby, 37, from Wigan, a warehouse supervisor and part-time fitness instructor, set a time of 42.6 seconds - but it was only for half a pie after umpires decided that full pie consumption could result in "swallow stall" - due to the size of the pie.
Tony Callaghan, owner of Harry's Bar, said: "The work experience lad was tasked with providing 24 competition pies, but mixed up the order and sent them to a divorce party up the road. By the time we realised, it was too late."
Mr Callaghan added: "We had to go ahead. It was a bit like Andy Murray replacing Roger Federer for a show game at the tennis finals in the O2, but everyone took it in their stride and demonstrated the professionalism of pie-eating at this level."
