His dad, wacky baker Rich Shaw, formerly of Southwick Village Stores which is closed due to structural damage, is a competition stalwart.

He has previously entered the world’s most expensive pasty, costing £230, which contained Wagyu meat. This year he entered a ‘bushtucker’ pasty filled with locusts, worms and crickets, in a chilli and chocolate barbecue sauce.
