But there’s one thing we know many of you are looking forward to in particular: the food challenges. Yes indeed, you finally have your chance to live out the Man Vs Food dreams you’ve been waiting for. 

The Chilli Pepper Challenge

Taking place Friday 12th August at 6.45pm, the Chilli Pepper Challenge is not for the faint hearted, or the sweaty. The chillies are supplied by Devon Chilli Company. They got hotter as you go along, and there is a pint of milk in front of each contestant. 

But if they drink it, they’re out.

Suitable for vegetarians, vegans, coeliacs and everything in between – this is sure to be a hotly contested event, full of fiery individuals.
