Guinness World Records Day 2016

We love the Guinness World Records because of how truly bizarre a lot of them are.

Almost anything you can think of has been achieved, from the weird to the wonderful - Most Big Macs eaten in a lifetime? Check. Biggest barbecue in the world? Done.

Now meet Simon Berry, who has smashed our new favourite Guinness World Record: dunking a biscuit into a cup of tea from the tallest height.

The 24-year-old, from Sheffield, dunked his chocolate Hobnob from a whopping 73 metres (240ft), neatly combining his dual passions for biscuits and bungee-jumping.

His technique - after tying his long hair back - involved clasping one wrist over the other to offer greater stability and precision as the snack surged towards its target.

Berry's bungee dunk was one of a number of challenges confirmed as part of Guinness World Records Day.

Magician Martin Rees, 28, from Hemel Hempstead, notched up the record for the most tricks performed in a single skydive, while other Britons wowed judges with their record-breaking ability to identify Queen songs, comic book superheroes and Oscar winners against the clock.
