What is causing my tomatoes to distort so badly ? I have watered and fed them regularly.

If they are the large beefsteak tomatoes, that's just what they do

Got lots like those - as has been said, typical beefsteak tomato - should be delicious

If your plant isn't supposed to be a beefsteak one, nodislab, I would add that one of my Ailsa Craigs produced one tomato like that, all the others on the plant being ACs. I think it got bashed by a passing dog while the baby tomato was forming. It maybe distorted the sepals or the pistils or whatever they are.

...or maybe it could be uneven/incomplete pollination?
