THIS Morning viewers were left outraged today after a record breaking speed eater scoffed 20 chicken nuggets in just one minute.
Leah Shutkever showed off her talent for polishing off nosh live on TV, cramming home the popular fast food one after another.
Hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary were mightily impressed by the feat and cheered her heartily along.
But some viewers weren’t as happy about it, pointing out it could be a tough watch for people with eating disorders and those struggling to afford food.
One wrote on Twitter: “What a disgusting item on @thismorning . Ramming Chicken nuggets in her mouth. That does nothing to reduce awareness to eating disorders or obesity.”
Another posted: “What a misguided editorial decision to feature someone devouring a plateful of chicken nuggets in 30 seconds when so many families are struggling to feed their families. Think more carefully.”
A third complained: “one minute #Lorraine talking about unnecessary food waste next min some ridiculous woman needlessly stuffing in chicken nuggets. Good shout too when some ppl struggling to feed kids. Had to turn off.”
Leah became a speed eater nine years ago aged 23 when her brother challenged he at a restaurant.
The fitness enthusiast admitted she gets criticism for her lack of chewing during challenges but that hasn’t affected her performances.
Her records include the fastest time to chug a litre of gravy, doing it in 1 minute 4.9 seconds and fastest time to eat a chocolate orange, clocking in at 57.14 seconds.
She previously told Guinness World Records: “I don’t know why people find such fascination in it, but it’s something to develop quite early on in competitive eating, especially when doing Guinness World Records titles,” Leah explained.
“You learn that it wastes time to chew!”
