Hello and welcome again to the 2019 Pie Diving Championships.

This year has been highly anticipated following the exclusion of 5 time champion Anthony Dewley.

The man who managed a perfect score with his Melton Mowbray pork and pickle pie double swan dive in 2016 has flown home after being disqualified.

The King of Crust failed a late flan test as he was about to go to poolside for the 10 Metre Quiche.

It’s thought the Larder from Leicester was trying to get a weight advantage in the savoury category.

But the adjudicator found excessive traces of egg in the “quiche” and declared it a flan. Dewley had topped it with cheese to disguise the underside.

Anthony Dewley’s team have said they will look into the matter further before appealing.
