Danny also tucked into a big doughnut box.

He was full of praise for the tasty food on offer and said his burger was "to die for" in the YouTube video, which went viral and has been viewed more than 400,000 times.

Entrepreneurs Chantelle Davis and Hayley Reynolds have run Big Phillies drive-thru since last last November.

Big Phillies - which is billed as a drive-thru “good mood food” experience - has proved a major success and has now gone on the road as a pop-up drive-thru.

Mum of one Chantelle, of Meanwood, ran a street food mobile catering business for more than 10 years.

She travelled to music festivals across the UK and regularly met up with Prosecco van owner Hayley, of Headingley.

They both had work lined up filling their diaries for 2020, but when the Covid pandemic struck everything was cancelled.

Chantelle launched Big Phillies Drive-Thru last November and Hayley stepped in later to help to get the new business off the ground.

The menu consists of Philly cheese steaks, Caribbean food, Greek street food and fresh donuts.
