A man has challenged himself to collect one chip from each Wetherspoon pub across Britain.

Boris Bennett is on a mission and has already collected nine chips in a plastic folder.

He shared an image of his 'trading cards collection book' on Facebook group 'Wetherspoons paltry chip count', where customers rate the size and quantity of chips they receive in their orders.

Above his post he brilliantly captioned it as: "Evening all.

"You may remember me from such fine works as the stonehenge/chiphenge post.

"Today however I bring you this. A healthy 38 chips in the Spinning Mule in Bolton this afternoon.

"I am currently on a mission to collect and record 1 chip from every Wetherspoons in Britain, and here is what I have got so far.

"If you are wondering 'does that bloke really walk around with a trading cards collection book full of chips?'

"The answer is yes, yes I do."

Bennett shared the post a couple days ago (2 November) and it's already racked up over 11,000 likes and 4,200 comments.

Fans were loving his adventure and were quick to voice their opinion in the comments.

One wrote: "Noticed my local spoons there, The Spinning Mule. If I ever see you in there your chips and favourite pint is on me, Boris."

Another joked: "Definitely needs better organisation.

"Start with an alphabetised empty catalogue with the names of all of the 'Spoons and then fill them in as you acquire the chips."

A third user added: "I hope there is an award for such a noble venture.

"Reminds me of the deeds performed by Knights of old."

Another commented: "When you come to the Lord Burtons, in Burton, please make sure I know so I can see this book in all its beauty."

Whilst a final user wanted to reward Boris on his noble mission and wrote: "Boris give us a shout if you in Leeds or the Yorkshire area.

"I got too see this book and I buy you a bowl of chips and pint for your troubles. Lad."
