Darlaston Win The Big Town Showdown

The Big Town Showdown came to a thrilling end with Darlaston being crowned the cleverest town in the West Midlands.

Big town leader

On Friday Chris from Dazlaston was holding the top spot on the Big Town Showdown with an incredible time of 31.7 seconds. 

But he still had to hold onto the top spot whilst the final contestant, Jenny, stepped up to play for Bedworth! 

There was some fighting talk between the two contestants before Chris heard Jenny's final attempt to knock him off the top off the leaderboard. Listen back here:

After 3 months the Big Town Showdown finished with Chris winning for Darlaston!

Things instantly got interesting for Chris as he was put in a Heart Car with our Heart Angels dressed in a number onesie and a blindfold!

Big Town Chris

He had no idea where he was going, but 5 minutes later he was taken out of the car, taken inside a building and a microphone and headphones were put on his head! 

Ed & Rachel then spoke to him again and broke the news of exactly where he was!

Listen back to that here:

For the next half an hour Chris was a valuable member of the Rainbow Fishbar team serving free Fish and Chips to the people of Darlaston, in what we called... Chris N Chips!

Chris N Chips

Chris had a secret talent for wrapping fish and chips up, and we all know how hard that can be!

It only took 5 minutes for passers by to come through the door and grab themselves some free food from the Rainbow Fishbar!

Big Town Final

It was a great morning and Darlaston now have the bragging rights on the Big Town Showdown!

We've never eaten so many chips at such an early time before!
