A TV contestant who appeared on Britain's Got Talent has revealed his artwork of Stonehenge - made entirely of food.

Welsh artist Nathan Wyburn created four 1.5m by 1.2m edible scenes of the UK's most iconic landscapes including Stonehenge, Ribblehead Viaduct, Giant's Causeway and the Clifton Suspension Bridge at Avon Gorge.

It took Mr Wyburn 48 hours and 67kg of fresh produce to craft the artwork with help from Yeo Valley organic chef Ali Pumfrey.

Stonehenge was constructed from mature cheddar cheese, natural yoghurt, kefir, leeks and cabbage leaves.

Mr Wyburn rose to fame after reaching the semi-final of Britain's Got Talent in 2011 and created a portrait of Michael McIntyre using marmite on toast in his audition.

Mr Wyburn said: "I like to bring people closer to the natural world through my work and relished the opportunity to take up this unique challenge.

"I used to visit Stonehenge as a child and was always completely in awe of the amazing natural landscape, so it was a really fun process thinking about how I could bring that to life through local products.”

Yeo Valley commissioned the artwork after research of 2,000 British people found that 41 per cent enjoy food more when they know exactly where it comes from with 49 per cent preferring products grown in the UK.

But, while 45 per cent would rather support local farmers, only 24 per cent could name the area where the produce in their weekly shop originates from.

Mrs Pumfrey repurposed the landscapes in recipes and the unused ingredients were donated to food charity City Harvest.
