Lee Wakefield retained his title as the Quavers’ superfan

Any heavyweight champion will tell you that getting to the top is hard – but staying there is harder.

That’s the big challenge facing Dalston, east London’s Lee Wakefield in early 2022.

After being crowned ‘Number One Buyer of Quavers Crisps’ at his Sainsbury’s, all he wanted to do was keep the title.

Such goals require sweat, determination and hard work, but it all paid off this week.

Lee took to Twitter to announce that he had made history after becoming the top Quavers buyer at his local supermarket for the second year in a row.

He wrote: “Very proud to be defending my title as number one buyer of Quavers at the big Sainsbury’s.

Lee took to Twitter to announce the huge success

“Winning the award once is an achievement, but to do it twice is unprecedented. It’s another proud day for me and my family.”

Lee also tweeted Walkers Crisps, who owns the brand, asking them to be “the face of Quavers.”

So far, the company has not commented on the champion’s offer, but one comment read: “Hard work pays off, nothing but respect for those numbers.”

Other die-hard fanatics were quick to congratulate Lee on his success.

One man, Daniel Eckersley, commented, “I understand if you win it three times you can keep Gary Linekar.”

Meanwhile, others were interested in the process and who the runners-up were.

Craig Hannigan wrote: “I need some stats here. How many bags were bought? Want to know if you’ve absolutely swept away the competition.’

In January 2022, Lee posted his award on Twitter, writing: “I didn’t prepare a speech but am overwhelmed to receive this award as Quavers’ number one buyer at the great Sainsbury’s in Dalston.

“It’s a real honor. I’m very open to branded offers @walkers_crisps.
