But she was so stunned by the passionate potato that she didn’t have the heart to crush it, so displayed it in the canteen instead.

And it will now feature in the newsletter of Woolenwick Infant and Nursery School, Stevenage, Herts.

This isn’t Paula’s first sensual potato. She found another one in the shape of a heart while cooking the same meal for the students last year.

Paula, a married mum-of-three, from Stevenage, told The Sun the discovery gave her strength as the chips fell.
