Skylark Maize Maze and Funyard in Wimblington will host the eighth Annual Fenland Sweetcorn Eating Competition on Sunday September 10.

Hosted by Josh Lovatt from Star Radio, competitors will be attending from around the region to see if they can chomp more cobbs than their fellow contestants.

There will be two heats for children and adults, the winners of each the heats will go through to the final where the adults can win £100 cash and the children a supersoaker water squirter.

In each heat, the participants will be asked to eat as many corn-on-the-cobbs as they can in three minutes.
