A woman admitted on a radio show that she pranked her brother by sprinkling their grandmother's ashes over his pasta sauce...

Look, I'm a lover of pranks and have been known to take it too far from time to time, but this seems like it's overstepped the mark even for me.

Losing a loved one can be really tough on the whole family, but have you ever considered eating your deceased relative or using their remains for a laugh?

Well, in a shocking revelation on the Melbourne breakfast show Fifi, Fev & Nick, a woman confessed to eating her grandmother’s ashes.

The admission came during the show’s "Cashfessional" segment on Tuesday, May 28.

Cheyenne from Narre Warren, Victoria, stunned hosts Fifi Box, Brendan Fevola, and Nick Cody with her disclosure.

“I ate my Nan,” she said over the phone.

When asked to elaborate, Cheyenne explained: “My nan passed away in August last year and got cremated. My family and I were grieving, so I went over to Mum's one night to cheer her up a bit… let’s just taste Nan.”

She further revealed that after eating the ashes once, she convinced her mother to join in.

“I didn’t want to be alone in it,” she said.


Cheyenne’s confession took an even more disturbing turn when she admitted to pranking her brother, who had recently returned from prison.

“We haven’t lived with each other since we were kids. So I thought it would be funny to prank him… and I put some of Nan's ashes in the pasta sauce,” she disclosed.

The hosts were visibly taken aback.

Box, 47, responded with a shocked: “Oh Cheyenne …” while Fevola, 43, quipped: “Spaghetti alla nan.”

A video posted on the show’s Instagram showed the hosts gasping, giggling, and holding their heads in disbelief as they listened to Cheyenne’s story.

Box remarked: “This is so much for me, like, I’m taking it on board. It’s a lot of eating Nan.”

Cheyenne confessed to having “a weird addiction” to the ashes. When Box asked if she still had any left, Cheyenne revealed she had “a whole box full.”

“Have you stopped eating it … her?” Box asked.

“I’ll say yes for your sake, Fifi,” Cheyenne responded, though she admitted she eats the ashes “just for fun.”

Cheyenne concluded by saying she feels closer than ever to her late grandmother. “Nan will live on through me forever,” she said.

Viewers of the video were equally as shocked, as one person wrote: "This is the stupidest thing I’ve heard. As if you would go to your mums and be like ohhh let’s eat her ashes to cheer up WTAF! Go get help."

A second person said: "This is messed up, I turned this off when listening this morning!"

Having scrolled through the comments, I don't see anyone who thinks that eating the ashes is a good idea.

So it begs the question, would you eat your relative's ashes or trick your family into doing so?

There's a correct answer to that question, but you'll have to work that out for yourself.
