There are two entries in the Guinness Book of Records for the faster turkey plucker.

The fastest pluck was by an Irishman, Vincent Pilkington, who achieved one minute 30 seconds set up on RTE television back in November 1980. The fastest time to pluck three turkeys of 11 minutes 30 seconds was achieved by turkey farmer Paul Kelly of Kelly Turkeys in Danbury in a head-to-head with Gordon Ramsay as part of Ramsay’s ‘Cookalong’ in November 2008.

Now Vincent has challenged Paul to a ‘Champion of Champions’ pluck-off based on two turkeys which is set to take place at How Green, Chelmsford, tomorrow.
