A COLYTON butcher is hoping to bring home the bacon during Bacon Connoisseurs' Week.

Anton Bolton, from Colyton Butchers, has entered the national competition with his sweet honey cure bacon.

Finalists will be announced at an exclusive launch event on Monday, March 22.

Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke will judge and announce the winners.

He said: "I adore bacon and find it's both a great breakfast to se me up before a day full of dance training and for creating a quick pasta supper after a hard day in the studio.

"I'm really excited to discover the wide selection of different bacon cures out there and to taste some new bacon recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks too. Bring on the bacon!
