NINE chilli-eating challengers attempted to devour eight blistering hot chicken legs for charity.

The challengers took part in the Man v Food-style challenge at Sukhi’s Indian restaurant in Blackburn Road, Darwen.

They had to eat the eight wings covered in the sauce — a combination of the hottest chillis around the world.

If they completed the challenge, they received a T-shirt and a place on the ‘wall of flame’, and a free meal.

Those who failed the challenge had to pay £14.95 for charity’.

One contender, 21-year-old Callum Ramsey lasted less than three minutes before quitting the challenge.

But asbestos-mouthed Phil Colbert, from Darwen, chomped his way through the meal in 23 minutes and 40 seconds, and managed the three minute afterburn.
