Giant pig in blanket that weighs more than an eight-year-old child is coming to London

Pigs in blankets fans, listen up – a really huge sausage wrapped in bacon is coming to London next month.

Yes, the Christmas favourite is going gigantic, and you can be one of 300 people to try it.

This P.I.B. will weigh 25kg (about the same as an average eight-year-old child), will be about 70-80cm wide and measure over two metres in length.

The average man in the UK is 1.75 metres tall so this really is a lot of pork, which will be wrapped in over 10 metres of bacon.

In fact, this beast will be about 1000 times bigger than a normal chipolata.

It will appear on the opening night of the four-day food festival Taste of London at Tobacco Dock, East London on 21 November.

The giant sausage – dubbed The Notorious P.I.B. – will be created by Simon ‘The Butch’ Taylor, founder of the Surrey Hills Butchers.

Guests on the first night of the festival will have a chance to enjoy a piece of The Notorious P.I.B., which will be cooked for six hours at the festival’s fire pit.

Simon said: ‘I have been lucky enough to work in traditional butchery for over 25 years – that’s over 25 Christmases and a lot of pigs in blankets!

‘I couldn’t imagine a more fitting way to pay homage to each of these years than by creating this at the festive edition of Taste of London.’

Tickets for Taste of London are from £17 and £5 for children.

As well as the giant P.I.B., you can expect 50 restaurants, including Berenjak, Thai barbecue masters Smoking Goat, Lewis Hamilton-backed Neat Burger with its plant-based burgers, and Bubala, which opened in September and features vegetarian Middle Eastern food.
