Viking FM’s Rosie eats muffin hands-free

Viking FM presenter Rosie Madison has broken a world record for eating a muffin in the quickest time without using her hands.

The bizarre challenge was the result of weeks of training in which Rosie had to eat lots of muffins hands-free.

Her winning time of 24 seconds beats the previous record of 29 seconds by New Zealander Alastair Galpin.

Rosie says “It’s taken a lot of hard work and dedication to get to this point. It’s been a great year for our region with Hull City getting back to the Premier League and Luke Campbell winning a gold medal at the Olympics – now I’m helping to continue that success.”

The rules state the muffin had to weigh in between 60 and 70 grammes including any icing and Rosie couldn’t use her hands.

In the weeks leading up to the event, Rosie put in hours of training as she tried to find the best kind of muffin for the challenge – in the end she shunned the traditional chocolate chip in favour of a blueberry.

“The audience really helped me to pull through this challenge. I can’t lie, there were moments where I just didn’t think I had what it takes to become a world champion but I now I’ve done it I can says it’s an amazing feeling.”

Rosie’s co-host Jim Coulson has nothing but admiration for his colleague – “This is so exciting for Viking FM Breakfast, Rosie is actually officially the best in the world at something and we have the email to prove it! I’m so proud”
