A Copley man is working hard to share the delights of our traditional Yorkshire Pudding with a wider audience.

Chris Blackburn appears on the BBC One show tonight following two hours of filming at the York Food and Drink Festival this week.

He can be seen competing with UK Yorkshire Pudding champion Ben Cox, of The Star at Sanction near Beverley, and presenter Alex Riley.

“It was a great experience,” said Chris, a two-time Yorkshire Pudding champion.

He is filming again on Tuesday night at the Fleece Inn, Ripponden, for a new cookery show which airs next spring.

His has previously appeared on ITV’s Food Glorious Food and Country House Sunday.

Mr Blackburn also runs his own food blog called Yorkshire Pudd at
