Woman to make ‘world’s biggest chips’ after buying potato bigger than her head


A WOMAN reckons she can make the world’s chunkiest chips — after buying a potato bigger than her head.

Jessie Lynn, 30, looked in her shopping and was stunned to find the 8.5in spud, weighing in at 2lb.

She said the titanic tuber terrifies her cat Styles who is scared it might jump at her.

Support worker Jessie was preparing tea on Monday when the colossal carbohydrate emerged from her ­shopping bag. She said: “I was shocked. I thought, ‘That cannot be a potato — no way’.

“I measured it and it is 8.5 inches long — bigger than my head. Just holding the potato to take photos made my wrist ache.”

Jessie showed the pictures to her friends, “who think I’ve gone bonkers”.

She went on: “I showed my fiance and he always comes out with one liners. Because I like to use filters on my photos he joked,

‘It’s not real, it’s potato-shopped’.” Jessie said Styles will not go near the whopping veg but cannot take her eyes off it while her dog Sadie “just wants to eat it”.

She is unsure what to do with the potato, which she got from her local veg shop in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.

She has it proudly displayed on the kitchen worktop and said: “It’s honestly part of the family. I don’t want to cut it up but I don’t want it to go to waste.

"Maybe I could use it to make the world’s biggest chips.”
