GRAPPLING with a bunch of grapes is child’s play for one Worksop pupil who has been showcasing his mind-boggling talent this week.

The Guardian video team dropped in to Valley School to check in with Ben Storey, who showed off his skills as seen in February’s Valley’s Got Talent Show.

Ben ‘Grape Boy’ Storey, 12, has won a legion of fans after he polished off a jaw-dropping 62 grapes in just one minute.

The costumed character is planning a charity walk for Comic Relief and said he would love to turn on the Christmas lights and has already received over 200 signatures of support.

“I’m hoping to win Valley’s Got Talent next year and am looking to beat the world record of eating 175 grapes in three minutes,” he said.
