Sleaford’s Bindi Indian restaurant was raising temperatures on Friday night when it played host to visiting diners from a Scandinavian TV show.
roprietor of the Southgate eaterie Muhammed Karim welcomed two female presenters from Swedish TV to feast their taste buds on reputedly the world’s hottest curry, The Widower Challenge.
Muhammed said: “The TV presenters only managed a minute amount before bursting into tears.”
The women were both equipped with Widower T-shirts to look the part.
The evening also saw an appearance from actor Fabrizio Santino who plays hunk Ziggy Roscoe in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.
He had decided to dine at Bindi and was also offered The Widower Challenge, but safely opted for the chicken korma.
The actor was making a personal appearance at the neighbouring Reel nightclub for its Club Detention teenagers dance night.
Muhammed said: “The buzz at Bindi was amazing with hundreds of screaming teenagers from 7.30pm onwards waiting to see the star on the doorsteps of Bindi which carried on for almost four hours.”
