A special Yorkshire Pudding lunch at the Fleece Inn will be the subject of a BBC Two cookery show.

The Ripponden pub welcomes the film crew and chef Chris Blackburn, winner of the 2011 & 2012 Great Yorkshire Pudding Challenge, into their kitchen on October 1.

Manager John Priest said: “They’ll be filming in the kitchen and getting comments from customers about how the food tastes.

“We’re fairly optimistic we’ll be full for it - we’re expecting about 60 or 70 people.

“It’s going out at 8pm on BBC Two so it’s a good audience and it’s brilliant exposure for us. We’re grateful for the opportunity.”
