‘The tomato, on a cheese toastie,’ voted hottest substance ever


A piece of tomato sneaking out of a freshly made cheese toastie has been voted hottest substance ever in a new Channel Four poll.

The Channel Four programme, which airs on Tuesday night at 8 pm, counts down a list of the top 100 hottest substances ever known.

A tomato on a cheese toastie finished ahead of volcanic lava, with molten cast iron finishing third. Toasted sandwich fan, Peter Thape recently got a piece of tomato stuck on his lip as he bit into his toastie.

‘The hospital placed me in a coma for 3 weeks to help my body recover,’ admits Thape.

‘I’ve had to have a cherry tomato shaped skin graft from my thigh,’ added Thape.
