New World Records

For a man who doesn't watch Doctor Who, Rob Hull has an odd collection of Daleks.

Hull, who lives in Doncaster, has collected 571 of the toilet unpluggers, despite not really watching the show, and has now made it into the latest issue of The Guinness World Records. About time after spending £2,000 ($3,000) on them.

Elsewhere, Californian student Chanel Tapper, 21, has been recognised for the world’s longest tongue – at 9.75cm (3.8in).

And 36-year-old Aevin Dugas, from New Orleans, has bagged the largest natural afro gong, measuring 1.32m (4ft 4in). Hats off to her forever hatless head...

Other entries include longest fingernails, at 6m (19ft 9in). Not creepy in the least. Calls herself The Duchess...

Stewie the Nevada-based cat measures 48.5in when he stretches out, making him the world’s longest cat.

Oh and the most skipping dogs at one time record is now 13. Not sure that can ever be beaten.

And finally the biggest pizza (you can actually order) is, unsurprisingly, a big pizza. The 54-incher that costs £121 ($200) and feeds up to 100 people, depending on the people.
