Yorkshire pudding addict

He’s aiming to eat 200 Yorkshire puddings over the Christmas period

A Yorkshire pudding addict who eats up 20 of a day has claimed he’s in the “best shape” of his life and has lost 5 stone this year thanks to his unorthodox diet.

Jake Farrar, 25, hit the headlines earlier this year when he confessed he’s obsessed with the roast dinner staple and eats up to 20 of the battered treats a day.

While the 25-year-old from Middlesbrough rarely makes his own, preferring brand Aunt Bessie’s, he whips up unusual creations, including Yorkshire pudding burritos, for his followers on TikTok.

Despite consuming Yorkies daily, and sometimes having a three-course meal based on the British classic, Jake says the regime has kept him in shape and even helped him to lose weight.

Appearing on This Morning on Friday, he discussed his love of Yorkshires with hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

After showing off some of his recipes, which included a pie made from the baked delight,  Alison said he was “selling the Yorkshire pudding life to me” when she saw it could be such a versatile food item.

Meanwhile, Dermot said: “I don’t want to be the party pooper, but do you have your five a day and stuff as well?”

Jake replied: “I will say I’m in the best shape I’ve been because over the past year I’ve lost five stone.”

Thrilled Alison remarked: “Look at that! Eat Yorkshire puddings and lose weight.

He also told the hosts that he is likely yo eat 200 of them over the Christmas period
