Eggs Benedict is an indulgent delight.

Perfectly poached eggs, toasted muffins and creamy hollandaise – delicious right?

Except when it looks like this, you might be a little put off.

This was the dish served up to a man in a Tesco cafe in Wigan.

Thomas Hesketh posted the picture on Twitter and said: Ordered eggs Benedict in your Wigan cafe and received this monstrosity.

He said he paid £5 for the meal and was a bit concerned when staff werent sure if they still offered the dish, which was listed on the menu.

When Tesco asked if he spoke to staff about it, he added: Yes, they said they could cook me up another one but it would be the same.
