The event - which sees competitors trying to gobble the most of the county's traditional biscuits - usually draws big crowds but was held on the internet this year due to coronavirus.

The competition was won by Kate Scott, who ate eight-and-a-half biscuits.

Kate, from Shaftesbury, admits that she was determined to win the contest for local pride.

She said: ''It was all in the preparation - I had plenty of time to practice and focus.

''Those knobs were going down - no-one else was going to beat me.''

Contestants across nine heats had a minute to polish off as many knobs as possible.
