After the burger made a 200mph descent back down to earth, Callum posed as an Uber Eats driver, disguised by a crash helmet, to bike the treat to his unsuspecting mum.

Her verdict on the spicy feast, which is billed as the Chicken Shop’s fieriest range ever, was: “It’s freezing!”

Callum, who has 1.1 million followers on TikTok, used a bespoke stratospheric balloon filled with hydrogen gas to launch the burger. The stunt was performed in partnership with specialist company Sent into Space

The video has already received more than 56,000 views on TikTok, where it is one of a series of wacky stunts carried out by Callum over the years. You can watch it here.

John Nelson, CEO of Chicken Shop, said: "We think our fried chicken is truly out of this world and how better to prove it than to truly launch it into space and then celebrate with an equally out of this world prank in partnership with Cal who we are all big fans of at Chicken Shop.

"Our new Volcano range of burgers, sandwiches and wraps are made with a fruity habanero super-hot sauce, if you’re someone who seriously craves the heat then this is the chicken for you. Thanks to everyone who got involved, including Uber Eats, Sent into Space, Cal and of course, his mum!”

Matthew Price, Regional General Manager of Uber Eats, said: “Uber Eats customers are not only fried chicken connoisseurs but their appreciation for all things spicy is something to be celebrated. Chicken Shop is an amazing partner for us and we’re thrilled to offer the new Volcano range delivered to customers’ doors.”

The new Volcano range is available at all Chicken Shop sites from today (Tuesday), including the “as seen in space” Volcano Burger. It is made up of Chicken Shop’s classic chicken fillet, lettuce, volcano hot sauce, cheese and Habanero ranch slaw, and costs £9.25.
