Oh, goody. The grotesqueness of Man Vs Food has been replicated by terrestrial telly. This one-off documentary investigates the popularity of supersized meals, restaurant challenges and large-scale eating competitions in Britain and America. The programme follows a 72-year-old Brit trying to beat his own record of consuming 32 boiled eggs in a minute, and a man travelling to the US to take part in a chicken wing-eating contest. There's also an insight into a hot-dog event held in New York each year on July 4th, and several eccentric gatherings such as Dorset's World Stinging Nettle Eating Championship and the Fiery Foods UK Chilli Festival in Brighton. You'd never know there were folk starving in the world.
