A cafe is offering up the ultimate hangover cure….a 4000 calorie fry up so big it has to be served in a pizza box.

The ‘ultimate breakfast box’ has no fewer than six sausages, six rashers of bacon, four slices of black pudding, four fried eggs, four hash browns, two tubs of beans, two tubs of chopped tomatoes, two tubs of mushrooms, six slices of mega thick toast and three slices of fried bread.

The box, which costs £15 but can be delivered for free within a one mile radius of the Walsall cafe, is every greasy spoon lovers dream.

But the challenge, created by Kats Cabin Cafe and Tearoom, contains a whopping 4,275 calories – double the daily amount recommended for women.

The big breakfast also contains 210 grams of fat.

According to owners, husband and wife team Kat and Mark Pointon, no one has successfully finished the fry up yet.

Charles Wade-Palmer recently attempted but failed to make it even half way through the feast before bowing out.

He said: “I’d seen pictures online of the box and it looked huge there but no where near as big as it looks when opened up in front of you.

“I was in all honesty amazed at how good it tasted despite there being so much.

“There was no way I was going to be able to finish it off, especially with the amount of toast but I gave it a good crack.

“Definitely the dream start to the day after a night out, as long as it’s shared.

“I’d never seen a full English like it and it’s going to take an absolute beast to demolish it in one.”

Mark added: “We’ve had nearly 800,000 likes on Facebook and a lot of comments.

“There have been a lot of people saying they want to come and try it and that they could finish it off easily.
