In this month’s FHM, we were challenged by Bolton reader Ben Harvey to eat the world’s biggest fried breakfast. We should have sent a polite but firm reply, declining on the grounds that we’ve got fatty organs and once shat ourselves after a Pizza Hut buffet. We should have. Instead, arteries braced and spare Y-fronts at the ready, we set off to Mario’s Café in Westhoughton to face a meaty ordeal like no other.

For the full damage report, grab this month's magazine - a music-themed special - on sale now.

Elsewhere in our papery ode to all things audio, you’ll also find a feature on the world’s hardest roadies, an exposé on the secret history of the iPod and an arse-heavy guide to shooting the perfect music video. Not got ears? Flip the cover for FHM Collections, our bundled-in guide to this season’s hottest fashion, introduced by Battlestar Galactica’s uber-dandy Jamie Bamber.
