The 5,000 calorie Yorkie Pud Burger which could (probably) kill you

Anything USA can do, we can do better…

Combining that most American of dishes - the burger - with that famously English dish - the roast dinner - the two foodstuffs have now been forged together in an almighty matrimony of first-class gluttony.

This towering 5,000 calorie creation, named The Yorkie Pud Burger, was created for a Man V Food-type challenge by Michael Hewitt, manager of the Smokehouse BBQ Restaurant in Wakefield, Yorkshire - and needless to say food has so far yet to lose.

Two 20oz burger patties meet 2lbs of diced chicken breast and mounds of mozzarella cheese are washed down by waves and waves of gravy. There's also a sprinkling of chips sandwiched between two seemingly genetically modified Yorkshire puddings bigger than your head. Oh and don’t worry about watching your figure – it also comes with a pint of milkshake to wash it all down with.

To get the £25 burger for free – not to mention winning a place on the wall of fame and a free Smokehouse T-shirt - challengers must finish the entire dish within 30 minutes. No easy feat. And if that doesn't sate your appetite, they also do the 'pizza burger', because of course they do.

Speaking of the creation, Hewitt said: "We went by the famous saying 'two nations divided by a common language'. We joined American cuisine – the burger – with the quintessentially British Yorkshire pudding, the most British of dishes other than fish and chips."

Frankly, you’d have to be a pudding not want a bite.
