A Bermondsey comedian has set a new world record for eating baked beans.
Rob Thomas broke the world record for the number of baked beans eaten in three minutes using a cocktail stick.
The new record is 159 baked beans, up from the previous best of 152 achieved in Jamaica.
The Bermondsey & Old Southwark MP revealed that he had once been the holder of a Guinness world record by taking part in the longest continuous croquet match.
Saturday night's event also featured performances by local musician Nigel of Bermondsey.
