Lib­ertines’ Pete 8,000 calo­rie feat

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

POP star Pete Do­herty has com­pleted a bizarre chal­lenge – wolf­ing down a café’s monster 8,000 calo­rie break­fast.

The Lib­ertines front­man ( above) was spot­ted tak­ing on the mam­moth ‘mega break­fast’ at the Dalby Cafe in Mar­gate.

With his dog sit­ting nearby, Do­herty ate four rash­ers of ba­con, four eggs, four bangers, hash browns, onion rings, bub­ble and squeak, beans and two slices of thick bread, also find­ing room for a quar­ter pounder burger and chips.

As well as skip­ping the bill, be­cause the singer pol­ished off the mas­sive fry-up in less than 20 min­utes, he be­came a mem­ber of an elite few who have com­pleted the feat.

Mark Ezekiel, cafe owner, said: “The chal­lenge has been go­ing since 2004, and 15 or 16 peo­ple have man­aged to com­plete it in to­tal, and only five or six have man­aged to do it in 20 min­utes.

“He sur­prised ev­ery­one. He smashed it. He fin­ished it in un­der 20 min­utes as well, so he got it for free.”

The Dalby Cafe has been open since 1946 and is be­lieved to be Mar­gate’s old­est cafe. THE US Em­bassy in Kath­mandu has guide­lines on what to do if a yeti is found.
