Heart Yorkshire send first Yorkshire pudding to space

Heart Yorkshire successfully launched the first ever Yorkshire pudding into the stratosphere to celebrate Yorkshire Day on 1st August.

The Heart Yorkshire Pudding reached near space meaning a first for Yorkshire, first for Yorkshire puddings and a first for Space. Dixie from the Heart Breakfast show commented “Yorkshire day is a big thing for us here in Yorkshire and we knew we had to do something out of this world to mark it.”

A Heart Yorkshire listener won an on-air competition to send her face into space to represent Yorkshire alongside the pudding. Heart listener, Leanne Kitching from Doncaster said: “It’s so crazy! I was listening to Heart Yorkshire at work and thought it was pretty cool, not something you hear every day and why wouldn’t I want my face in space with a Yorkshire Pudding?” Dan Blaney from SentIntoSpace added: “When we received the call we just couldn’t resist; what better way to celebrate Yorkshire Day by sending the first Yorkshire pudding into space!”

Dixie and Emma host Heart Breakfast weekdays from 6am-10am on Heart Yorkshire.
