A Redruth lady got a little more than she bargained for when she bought a Pasty from a shop in Truro. Because when Frankii Rogers tucked into her large steak; she found a picture of Ian Beale burnt into her Pasty, and if that wasn’t enough; he was actually crying!
Twenty year old Frankii said “I love a nice Pasty. I bought myself a Large Steak and was about to take a bite when I felt a sharp pain in my hand. I wasn’t sure what it was at first. I looked down and saw some gravy coming out the side. It was really weird because the Pasty looked fine apart from a circular burnt bit at the top. When I looked a little closer, the burnt bit looked like Ian Beale from Eastenders. I just couldn’t believe it. It was a bit off putting, you know; being Ian Beale and all. Then I realised the gravy was coming out Ian Beale’s eyes and he was crying!
Frankii took the pasty back to the shop where, owner Bernadette AKA Bernie took a photo, she couldn’t believe it either, she said “When the customer came back into the shop, I thought she was joking. I looked at the Pasty and it really did look like Ian Beale crying. I’m a huge Eastenders fan and I think it was a sign. I’m not sure what for, but it was definitely something.
Pasty expert, Dave James said “it’s very rare to get a face burnt into a pasty. People often see the face of Jesus on their toast and I have even seen a picture of Jesus on a goat’s ass. Although it’s very rare!”
Frankii is not alone. Ben Todman of Newquay had a similar incident, only he had a picture of Phil Mitchell on his Pasty. Ben said “Having Phil Mitchell staring at you whilst your trying to eat your dinner; is a real turn off! If it ever happens to anyone else, I suggest they just throw the Pasty away and buy another one! It’ll be the best thing you ever do!”
