Nicola Peate had to open her mouth so wide to tuck in to the burger that she dislocated her jaw.
Fans of above-average sized burgers needn't worry however, the 25-year-old's mishap can be attributed to more than just trying to open her mouth wide. Nicola suffers from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a condition which makes her joints unstable. Despite experiencing pain in her mouth after the meal, she didn't realise the extent of her injury until she was checked out at Royal Liverpool University Hospital the next day.
"I didn't think I'd dislocated it - you don't expect it to happen eating a burger, but I tried to eat it with a knife and fork and couldn't," she said. "I couldn't open my mouth fully - it felt like I had cramp in my tongue, then I started to get an earache and a headache."
"A woman had to have her jaw reset after dislocating it while eating a triple-decker burger."
