A LOCHMABEN traveller living in Australia made her TV debut this week live on Channel 9 News in Australia.

Rosie Houston, 25, has spent the past year living and working in Australia.
The Lochmaben native is currently staying in Perth and working as a barmaid at Carnegie’s Bar and Restaurant.
Earlier this week the bar, who specialise in breakfasts, were visited by a news crew there to film three challengers, who would take on the bar’s ‘Ultimate Breakfast Challenge’.
Rosie along with two others rose to the task which would saw them challenged to consume four eggs, four slices of toast, six black puddings, six white puddings, a tin of beans, mushrooms, tomato, six sausage, six bacon rashers and a bowl of chips, as well as polish off a glass of orange juice and a pot of tea.
The ‘Ultimate Breakfast Challenge’ is the brainchild of the bar’s Irish manager Gavin Behan, who is also responsible for introducing black and white pudding to hoards of Australians.
Challengers are tasked with clearing their plates in 30 minutes or less..
Winners will see their $60 bill waved, receive a $200 reward and make it on the venue’s leader board.
Only seven people have ever completed the challenge, the fastest in just 14 minutes.
Rosie said: “I failed miserably. I wasn’t nervous about taking part or being filmed, I was intrigued to see how much I could eat.
“I was really excited to be on TV although it was very early, 7 am, and the food is delicious. Carnegie’s does the best bacon and sausages in all of Perth.”
