Autumn may be here but things were warming up in St Helens Town Centre on Saturday when the St Helens Chilli Village Fiesta returned.
Run by Chilli Fest UK and supported by St Helens Council the event saw a variety of chilli producers from around the country exhibit their products in Church Square.
New to this year’s event was the introduction of Clash of the Titan, a nationally run and recognised chilli eating competition -not for the faint hearted – which involved 10 people battling it out to be crowned Chilli Titan Champion by eating some of the hottest chillies around.
The chilli eating event was won by Texas born scott who had travelled up from swindon for the event!
