Colin Craig-Brown returned to This Morning on Tuesday alongside his giant spud, named Doug, which weighed a whopping 7.9kgs. The New Zealander appeared on the ITV show recently as he thought it was the largest potato in the world, but it needed “DNA testing” before it could make it into the Guinness World Book of Records. However, Phillip Schofield confirmed testing revealed the item was not actually a potato and Colin dropped a swear word live on air. 

Speaking to Phillip about whether he was disappointed not to own the world’s largest potato, Colin said: “It’s not liked we have strived to do this, it was just a happy coincidence, we didn’t plan to grow this.”

He added: “It was a bit of a deflation to find out he wasn’t a potato but as you walk along through life these s****y sandwiches are thrown at you.” 

The ‘potato’ was actually a tumour which had grown on the root of a plant and Colin had been keeping it in the freezer for the past two months.
