SOUTH Shields comedian Chris Ramsey grabbed the world’s attention when he managed to have a snack on the track.
The 27-year-old Hebburn star was on a train from London to Newcastle on Tuesday night when a campaign he had launched to have a pizza delivered to a train came to fruition.
Chris had began his campaign the previous day when he tweeted pizza chain, Domino’s, saying: “I’ll be on a train from Kings Cross to Newcastle tomorrow night and I’m attempting to have a pizza delivered. Help.”
Domino’s replied, saying: “We’re going to make it happen!”
Chris had been in London to record Frankie Boyle’s BBC Radio 4 show, Blocked, alongside David Mitchell.
After boarding the train, Chris began tweeting with the hashtag #pizzaonatrain, which later trended worldwide – meaning it was one of the most discussed topics on Twitter around the globe.
Chris then began messaging a Domino’s worker and made a plan for his pizza to be delivered to Doncaster Station at 10.45pm.
After telling Domino’s he would need to have his picture taken with the delivery driver, he tweeted: “This will be the tensest hour and twenty minutes of my life. I feel like Jack Bauer!”
The comedian was shocked by the response his Twitter campaign received.
He tweeted: “I’ve never had so much support on Twitter ... the love is incredible! This is what Davina or John Bishop must have felt like.”
He also sent out a message to Dominos, saying: “No pressure @Dominos_UK, but if this doesn’t happen, I’ll owe two random train passengers and the @eastcoastuk staff some pizza.”
He added: “All I keep thinking of is me getting a selfie with the delivery trainer and the train leaving without me. This could happen.”
As the train pulled into Doncaster, Chris was met by a Domino’s driver who gave him four pizzas to share with his fellow passengers.
The comic snapped a picture with the driver before jumping back on the train to finish his journey.
He said: “This might be my greatest ever achievement. Thanks for all your support.”
