275x250.jpg Britain’s average busts have grown by three sizes in just two years, research has found, with the best selling bra size has going up from a 34B in 2010 to a 34DD in 2012.

Ladies living in the North, Midlands and Ireland are the ones contributing to this trend, whilst ladies in the South and Scotland have grown by a more modest two sizes.

And in Wales the average bra size is now a whopping E cup. But don't get too excited, experts say they can explain the uplifting news.

The increase is being attributed to women following role models such as Dita Von Teese, Kim Kardashian and Nigella Lawson and embrace their breasts.

An astonishing 78% of women surveyed by Debenhams - which conducted the study - admit to previously squeezing into a bra that was a smaller size than they should be wearing.

275x250.jpg Can you remember what you were doing on 15th March 2003? Or what the weather was like on 30th May 2007? British student Aurelien can, in fact he can remember EVERYTHING!

The 20-year-old is one of just a handful of people in the world who are baffling scientists with their ability to recall every detail of every day of their lives, a condition known as superior autobiographical memory.

Aurelien - who is the subject of a documentary on Channel 4 - can apparently even recall exactly what he did on every day since the age of four, including details of conversations and what he had for lunch.

In the show Aurelien is put to the test by eight time world memory champion, Dominic O'Brien, and examined by memory expert Professor Giuliana Mazzoni.

275x250.jpg A female sumo wrestler from London has been named as the heaviest sportswoman in the world after weighing in at 32 stone.

The 46-year-old mother of three is the only female sumo wrestler on the British Sumo Team and has only been competing for six years.

Sharran consumes 5,000 calories a day (two and a half times than recommended for the average woman) and to build strength and stamina she swims and walks.

After her marriage broke up eight years ago, she says it was wrestling that gave her the confidence to look for love: “I used to be ashamed of my size. But after taking up sumo I learned to love my body. The Guinness World Records recognition tops it off.”

275x250.jpg As you can probably tell from this photo, the reason we are writing about Mostafa Ismail from Egypt has something to do with his arms. He has the world record for the biggest biceps and triceps.

His arms have a whopping circumference of 64.77 cm (25.5 in) a fact which gained him a place in the new Guinness World Records 2013 book.

The 24 year-old, who trains six days a week and eats six meals a day and now lives in Massachusetts, USA, has arms with a greater circumference than the average human head!  

His right upper-arm circumference is 63.5 cm (25 in) flexed and 60.96 cm (24 in) non-flexed, and his left upper-arm circumference is 64.77 cm (25.5 in) flexed and 62.23 cm (24.5 in) non-flexed. 


Eva Halpain and John Manassel thought they were getting their moment in the spotlight when a TV crew came to interview them after a tree fell and caused damage to their home.


But the elderly couple from Benton, Arkansas, were somewhat upstaged during the TV interview … when a naked man appeared wandering out of the woods near their home.

Prompted by Manassel asking "What is this out there that we got?" and then stating that he should "start an ass-kicking contest" the TV crew turned the camera onto the naked man.

Local police are reported to have said that the 22-year-old man was high on drugs when he walked out of the woods and that he was arrested and charged with public intoxication and indecent exposure.


A one-armed pole dancer has scooped the top prize at the International Pole Championships in Hong Kong.

Deborah Roach from Australia took the 'Ultimate Pole' title despite only having one arm to help her swing around the pole.

She only took up pole dancing in 2006 after apparently being inspired by a circus-themed show and by 2009 she was winning competitions against able-bodied dancers.

275x250.jpg 41% of women would rather have bigger breasts than a high IQ… and a third would actually swap their IQ for bigger breasts if they could, a study has found.

A poll recently quizzed 1,142 women (aged 18–25) about what they valued more, brains or beauty, to better understand perceptions that women have of beauty.

While more than two fifths would rather have bigger breasts than a high IQ, 24%, said it was because bigger breasts would make them ‘feel happier’ and a third said they'd swap their IQ for bigger breasts.

44% also said they'd rather have a ‘slim figure’ then be brainy -- with 37% willing to swap their IQ in order to be their ‘ideal dress size’

More than half, 57%, of the respondents believed that men would be ‘more interested’ in them romantically if they had bigger breasts. In contrast, just 43% of the women asked felt that men would be ‘more interested’ in them if they had a higher IQ.

275x250.jpg What do you think of when you see all those sponges in the above photo? If you're anything like us it's probably a nightmare washing up session.

But if you are more like Kerry Trebilcock from Cornwall, it probably makes you a bit peckish -- because she's reportedly eaten more than 4,000 washing-up sponges.

In an interview with The Sun the 21-year-old said she suffers from a rare condition called pica, which causes victims to crave non-edible objects.

In addition to the washing-up sponges -- which she like with hot sauce or mustard -- Kerry says she has munched her way through 100 bars of soap.


The Musee d'Orsay in Paris, France contains artworks by the likes of Monet, Renoir, Gauguin and Van Gogh… but you'd be forgiven for not noticing them in this video.


That's because this video shows the moment fashion chain Etam pulled a marketing stunt by sending lingerie-clad women there to parade around.

Footage shows the women drop their coats in the middle of the busy gallery and then run towards the exit as bemused art-lovers watch on.

And while one or two men seem to have enjoyed the impromptu striptease, Musee d'Orsay less so -- their lawyers are making a formal complaint to Etam.

275x250.jpgAn Iranian man has apparently been left with a permanent erection after coming up with the idea of getting his penis tattooed.

The 21-year-old reportedly wanted Persian script reading "good luck on your journeys" inked on his manhood, along with his girlfriend’s initials.

However, a side effect of the tattoo -- and the tattooist puncturing too-deep with his needles -- he's been left with a permanent semi-erection.

As he's still able to have sex and achieve a normal(ish) erection the man has apparently rejected the treatments suggested by his doctors, it's reported in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

We just feel sorry for him, he only had space on his penis for his girlfriend’s initials and not her full name.


275x250.jpg A 69-year-old woman from Palm Springs has apparently been arrested after allegedly attacking her husband's penis with a pair of scissors.

The man is said to have called police over the weekend after she tried to snip off his willy -- leaving it attached but injured.

Officers who attended the scene say the attack between the couple, who have been married for 32 years, was the result of a long-running marital dispute.

Describing the weapon a spokesperson said they were "more heavy duty than the standard office scissors."

The injured man was treated at the local hospital for non-life-threatening wounds and released the same evening.


Bizarre dash-cam footage shows the moment a 128mph police chase ended with a topless woman wearing a G-string surrendered to officers.

The 28-year-old from Ohio had only been stopped when cops used stingers along the route 422 to disable two of her tyres.

She then proceeded to emerge from the vehicle -- wearing just fishnet stockings, a g-string and high heels -- and stagger across the road before surrendering.

Unsurprisingly the woman has been charged with operating a vehicle impaired refusing a blood alcohol test, fleeing and eluding, criminal damage, driving under a suspended licence, speeding and reckless operation.

275x250.jpg Boffins in France have published details about the size of the average French penis -- so garlic munching men don't worry about the size of le tackle.

Researchers at Paris-based National Academy of Surgery hope the study will curb a recent rise in penis enlargement surgery.

And so to the numbers... the academics say the "normal" penis is between 9 and 9.5cm when flaccid and between 12.8 and 14.5cm when erect.

Girth of the typical French member is between 8.5 and 9cm circumference when as soft as a floppy beret and then 10 to 10.5cm when doing a baguette impression.

A statement from the National Academy of Surgery said: "The feeling of having an insufficiently-large penis can be a source of anxiety and psychological suffering for a man.


A muscleman in Syria has been showing off his strength by pulling a train which he claims weights more than 100 tonnes.

Adnan Ismail al-Awad performed the stunt Kadam train station near the Syrian capital Damascus by pulling the 20 meter-long train.

After strapping himself into a harness the strongman was able to move the weighty vehicle on the rusty track.

While the actual train only weights 2.5 tonnes -- which obviously even we could haul -- al-Awad said this was increased to 100 tonne because of the incline.

275x250.jpg A personal trainer in the US has spent six months pigging out and eating junk food… in a bid to better understand fat clients.

With his muscular body and six-pack Drew Manning says he was fed up of hearing people tell him he didn't know what it was like to be fat and suffer cravings.

So the ripped 30-year-old decided to embark on a year-long experiment which would see him balloon in weight and then loose it all and get back to his trim self.

At least that's the plan! So far Drew has only gained the weight -- all 70lbs of it -- through an arduous regime of no exercise, and eating a diet of chips, soda and pizza.

275x250.jpg Research has found that women look their best for just two hours and 22 minutes of the average working day.
 

A study found the beautifully styled hairdo and fully made-up face perfected in front of the bathroom mirror is history by precisely 10.13am.
 
That's the point when the typical woman's professional, polished image is replaced by worn-off lipstick, smudged eye make-up and dishevelled hair.
 
The poll of 2,000 women also found the average female feels she needs to apply fresh make-up or restyle her hair again at 11.44am.

And 43 per cent said they were aware they looked like a 'different woman' after a long day in the office.

275x250.jpgTuesday is the worst day of the week to start dieting, research has revealed… so sit back, have a biscuit, and read about why this is.

Women who start counting calories on a Tuesday were found to typically give up in under a week, often ending up heavier than when they started out.
 
By contrast, those who begin their battle of the bulge on a Monday are most likely to shed the most weight, losing on average eight pounds over a three week period.
 
The study of 2,000 Brits who have been on a diet within the last year also found those who start their diet on a Saturday have a clear goal in mind and are more likely to see the dieting commitment through to the end.

Meanwhile, Sunday dieters are also less likely to fall prey to the yo-yo dieting cycle, with an impressive 88 per cent keeping off the weight they lose.


All footballers sweat while playing -- but Walter Pandiani must perspire more than most… he's just been dubbed the world's sweatiest footballer.


The evidence against him, this post-match interview after a clash between this team Espanyol and Getafe.

Having netted the winning goal in the dying minutes press were eager to hear from the match-winner… but they'd have been forgiven for forgetting about his on-pitch performance.

That's because as he spoke, the 35-year-old began to perspire and sweat patches appeared on his shirt and within a few minutes it was hard to spot any dry patches.

275x250.jpg A 22-year-old student from Illinois has been named by Guinness World Records as the new ‘Shortest Living Woman’ -- standing at just 2 ft 3 in (69 cm) tall.

In addition to this title, Bridgette also holds the record for the ‘Shortest Living Siblings’ alongside her brother, 20-year-old Brad Jordan, who measures 3 ft 2 in (98 cm) tall.

While their reduced height is caused by Majewski osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II the pair live normal lives and both study at Kaskaskia College.

Bridgette’s hobbies are focused around her love of music; dancing and cheerleading while Brad says he likes to play basketball… no, that was not us making a joke.


A thousand people have stripped off and floated naked in the Dead Sead to take part in a Spencer Tunick photo shoot.


Famous for his flesh-based photos, Tunick has previously snapped masses of naked people in all sorts of locations and settings - including this tribute to LS Lowry.

He says his latest shoot was intended to draw attention to the fact that the Red Sea, water level is currently dropping nearly four feet a year.

So he convinced 1,000 people -- aged from 18 to 77 years old -- to enter the salty lake and pose for a series of images.

Sperm bank turns down donations from redheads

275x250.jpg One of the world's largest sperm banks has said they will start rejecting donations from redheads -- because people don't want ginger babies.

Bosses at Cryos -- an international network of sperm banks -- say a recent surge in donations means they can now be more picky.

As a result they are looking at what traits are not in demand -- and redheaded donors top the list.

While there's said to be a strong demand for sperm from redheaded donors in Ireland, other places in the world are less keen.

A spokesperson for the sperm banks said people do not pick a redhead unless a sterile partner has ginger hair or the woman has a preference for redheads.

275x250.jpg Something tells us Aevin Dugas has a problem getting through some doorways, because she is the proud owner of the largest natural afro in the world.

With a circumference measuring an incredible 4 ft. 4 in (1.32 m) the impressive hair-do has apparently taken over 12 years to grow.

It's now larger than a traditional disco ball and so big the 36-year-old social worker from New Orleans could even fit the world’s shortest man inside!

Aevin says having such a big hairstyle can be problematic, "It’s always getting caught in trees, and one time I even slammed my hair in the car door! And I hate it when people touch it without asking my permission first!"

However, on the upside, she added that it's very comfortable to lie on in bed, "It provides the perfect pillow. I sleep very well." 

275x250.jpg Chanel Tapper had got the competition licked when it came to taking the title for the world's longest tongue -- hers measures 9.75 cm.

That means the 21-year-old student from California has a tongue twice as long as average and the equivalent length of an iPhone.

Her tongue is as long as the world’s largest cockroach; as wide as your palm and the same volume as a quarter pounder hamburger.

Speaking of her terrifically long tongue Chanel said: "I love the shocked reaction I get from people in the street when I stick it out."

However, she admits there is a downside of having a record-breaking tongue: "Most guys who see it automatically have their mind in the gutter… and so do some females."

World's longest fingernails measure 19ft 9in

275x250.jpgWe're having something of a Guinness World Records fest on Newslite today - to mark the release of the 2012 edition of the wonderfully bizarre records book.

And our first new record holder is Christine Walton from Las Vegas -- who has the world's longest fingernails measuring a freaky 19ft 9in (601.9cm).

That's 10ft 2in (309.8cm) on her left hand and 9ft 7in (292.1cm) on her right hand and the 45-year-old singer says she hasn’t cut her fingernails since 1990.

Christine insists the nails don’t prevent her from living a normal life; she can still braid hair, cook and drive, however, she does confess to struggling when shopping for clothes:

"I’ll see the cutest shirts, and they’ll have these skinny arms and I know that my nails would just rip straight through them, she said.

275x250.jpgOverweight women and cheating married men are the most likely to be willing to have sex on a first date, it's been revealed.

A survey of 10,000 British daters looked at which ones would be most open to having sex on the first date.

It was found that larger women are most open to going all the way right after meeting someone on a dating website.

While there was no similar effect in larger men, athletic gents and those who were already married were most likely to have sex on the first date.

On the whole it was discovered that men are more likely to want sex on a first date… and in other news water is wet.

275x250.jpgA paintball venue in Croydon has started offing extra protection for surgically enhanced women -- because one was reportedly injured after being shot in the chest.

Bosses at the UK Paintball centre in Whyteleafe say a 26-year-old woman recently suffered a ruptured implant after paintballs were fired at her boob.

The unnamed woman is said to have required medical treatment after the bizarre accident - thought to be the first of its kind in the UK.

In response to this the centre had added a line in its disclaimer stating that paintballs have the potential to rupture breast implants.

Women with breast implants are also now being asked to notify staff so that they can be give additional padding… like they don't have enough already.

275x250.jpg Britain’s female beach volleyball champions have turned their bottoms into their bottom line with their cheeky new kit design.

That's because the skimpy outfits will now feature advertising on the bikini bottoms and actively encourage fans to take photos of the athletic arses.

As shown off by Zara Dampney, 24, and Shauna Mullin, 26 - Britain’s female beach volleyball champions and currently ranked No 32 in the world - the kit has a Quick Response (QR) code printed on the rear.

Spectators have to point their camera-phone at this matrix barcode and will then be taken to the website of the advertiser Betfair… remember that in case you are caught taking a photo of and athlete's bottom by your wife.


The fact men like looking at breasts isn't exactly a secret. But that didn't stop one French woman double-checking this fact of life by placing a hidden camera on her substantial cleavage.

In her resulting video, the enterprising Parisienne can be seen placing an outward-facing video camera at the bottom of the plunging neck-line of her cardigan.

She then hits the streets of the French capital to see how men respond to her breasts -- with their every moment captured by her boobs-eye view camera.

Her highly unsurprising results… men looked. They looked a lot. Some more discrete than others, but it appears most couldn't help having a glance at her boobs. Others could barely contain their ogle. In other news, water is still wet.

275x250.jpg This unlucky motorist seems to have paid the ultimate price for making the error of telling his partner she wasn't as attractive as Pippa Middleton.

The red-faced driver of the Peugeot 206, was caught on camera driving through Birmingham with 'Is Pippa's Bum Still Better Than Mine???' daubed across the side of it in white paint.

It appears the scorned woman took revenge on the unknown man, who looks to have made the mistake of expressing his admiration for the royal maid of honour's most talked about asset, her bottom.

The scruffy message was painted in bright white letters down the passenger side of the blue vehicle which was spotted on Wednesday afternoon… onlookers said they thought the driver had received a bum deal.

275x250.jpg Women who are thinking about going under the knife can now get an instant boob job for free thanks to a new iPhone app.

The app is the brainchild of US plastic surgeon Elizabeth A. Kinsley, from New Orleans, who was the first doctor to employ 3D imaging technology to show women what they will look like after surgery.

Called iAugment, the app allows iPhone users to take a picture of themselves and virtually boost their cup size.

While it's intended for people considering plastic surgery themselves, we can imagine one or two blokes will be testing to see what their other half might look like with bigger breasts.

275x250.jpgThe average person will pile on over half a stone in the first year of a new relationship, research has revealed.
 

And if you think that's bad, couples are likely to gain one stone and four pounds EACH after ten blissful years together.
 
Three quarters of the 3,000 adults polled admitted to putting on weight when they are in a happy relationship.
 
And a quarter of people went as far as to say they knew they had had 'let themselves go' after meeting their current partner.

While many women have been horrified by the not altogether odd news, most men just say there is now more of them to love.

L-cup bra released for big-boobed women

275x250.jpgA company which specialises in making underwear for women with big boobs have launched the first L-cup sized bra.

Bravissimo say their super-sized L-cup bra has been developed because generously-endowed women can often struggle finding comfortable lingerie.

Apparently, devising a bra which offered the right level of support for L-cup breasts was so difficult it took 18 months to perfect.

It was added that 80% of women in the UK are currently wearing the wrong size bra and that the average woman has size 34E breasts.

It's not known what percentage of women require an L-cup bra… but if someone wants an investigative study conducting, you know where to find us.

275x250.jpg Hundreds of uninhibited New Yorkers have once again stripped off their trousers and skirts to participate in the 10th annual No Pants Subway Ride.

When the event launched 10-years-ago just seven people took part, yesterday an estimated 3,500 bared their legs and braved sub-freezing temperatures.

At 3pm the subway riders met at six points across the city before boarding subway trains and taking off their trousers or skirts. If asked why they'd removed their pants (trousers) participants said they were 'getting uncomfortable'.

After disembarking the trains the leg-baring subway riders stood on the platform admiring each others underwear… and confusing the life out of other passengers.

275x250.jpg A busty would-be model has been proudly showing off her brand new E-cup boob job -- which she won in an online auction for just £3.90.

20-year-old Danielle Sheehan recently underwent surgery at a private clinic in Norwich after winning the chance to boost her size 34C breasts to a 34E.

The healthcare worker, who has always wanted bigger boobs, says she placed a bid on millibid.co.uk for an "ultimate ­makeover" and was shocked to win for just £3.90.

She then used the prize to have the £4,100 boob job carried out by a leading cosmetic surgeon… all for less than the price of a push-up bra.

275x250.jpgEight out of ten women are worried about their partner's unhealthy lifestyle, if has been discovered.

Long stressful shifts at the office, a lack of sleep and exercise and a poor diet are the main concerns for wives and girlfriends up and down the country.

One in three women expressed fears their husband or partner is under too much pressure at work, while one in four said their other half scoffed too much fatty food.

A fifth of the 3,000 women surveyed added that they were worried their partner had become a 'couch potato'.

37 percent also said the worry their partner is overweight… prompting men up and down the country to shout the words pot, kettle and black.

275x250.jpg Wang, talywhacker, chopper and schlong are just some of the words men across the UK use to refer to their willy, it's been found.

An interactive map has been launched to collect the various words men in different regions use when talking about their penis and see how they compare.

For example, while blokes in the North East talk about their 'Pork Javelin' and 'Wham Wacker' those in London prefer 'Pork Sword'. Other popular terms include 'Oldboy', 'Todger', 'Ballzooka' and the 'One-Eyed Milkman.'

The 'I Call Mine" map has been set up by Lloyds Pharmacy is a bid to make men less embarrassed when talking about their… you know what.

A video of a heavily pregnant woman with a baby apparently trying to burst out from her stomach Alien-style has become an online hit.

In the one and a half minute clip, the French mom-to-be is seen lying on her back as her unborn child kicks and wriggles inside.

This causes her stomach to contort and wobbly - much to the amusement of the mother, her partner and another child.

And the video has also become an online hit gaining more than 150,000 views of YouTube since it was uploaded earlier this week.

But while many viewers have been amused and drawing comparisons with the chest-busting creature from Alien -- several expectant mothers have been left terrified. 

275x250.jpgThe average British bloke looks like Peter Kay… but thinks he most resembles David Beckham, it has been found.

The TV funnyman was revealed as the typical man in the street's celebrity look-a-like by an iPhone app which measures facial contours before telling users which star they most resemble.

Using stats from over 27,000 downloads it was also said that more UK women look like Charlotte Church than any other female celeb.

David Cameron, Richard Hammond and Chris Moyles also emerged as top male celeb-a-likes while for women it was Kate Garraway and Cheryl Fergiso.

However, a poll of 3,000 revealed the majority of deluded blokes believe they share David Beckham's good looks... they also think they can play football like him.

275x250.jpgSleepy Brits don't wake-up fully until around 10am every morning, a study of snoozers has found.

Despite getting out of bed at an average of 6.40am, eight in ten Brits admit they don't feel properly awake for hours.

In fact, most of us say we only feel 100 per cent alert at 9.55am and have used tried and tested methods of waking ourselves up.

52 percent said they do not feel awake until after siting down to breakfast, while 17 percent say they resort to playing loud music.

Sixteen percent even have a cold shower first thing in the morning in an attempt to get their body going and one in ten do exercise… after which we would be ready to go back to bed.

Adriana Lima reveals her $2m diamond bra

275x250.jpg
Supermodel Adriana Lima brought part of New York to a standstill yesterday, by arriving at a lingerie store wearing a $2m bra.

Lima was modelling the Victoria's Secret 'Bombshell fantasy' bra -- also dubbed the bling-bra -- at their store in Soho.

The bra is encrusted with more than 3,000 cut white diamonds, light blue sapphires and oval-shaped topazes, all hand-set in 18 karat white gold.

Designed by Damiani it has a total carat weight of 142ct and the pattern is meant to be based on swirling stars and constellations.

Apparently 29-year-old Lima was also wearing a blue satin gown at the promotional event… we can't sae we noticed.

275x250.jpg
Most firms dream of having their product become an online hit… but probably not if the whole internet is laughing at it.

But that's what has happened to clothes company J Crew after a picture of a pair of lace tights on their website made it look like the model had hairy legs.

Pictures of the £14 tights have been forwarded frantically around the internet and the product has been dubbed "Hairy Tights" because of the unshaved appearance.

However, fashion experts claim the tights are "An essential ingredient in the season's textural mash-up" and that the hairy effect only happens if views at a certain distance.

Normally they appear as a 'normal' pair of lace tights… which is a shame for women who thought they could get this seasons mush-have by not shaving.

A man who was told he had terminal cancer and would die within six months, sold most of his possessions and was then informed doctors had got it wrong.

Malcolm McMahon had got rid of family heirlooms, cashed in premium bonds and even given away his dog before finding out he was okay.

When the 55-year-old from Birmingham was told he had severe liver cancer in February last year, he says his mind quickly turned to ensuring his girlfriend was financially secure.

He tried to raise as much cash as he could by selling antique rings, china ornaments and plates left by my parents. He also put his house up for sale.

But three months later he says the doctor called him back with some good/bad news - the scans actually showed harmless lesions on the liver, not cancer.

Researchers have discovered why men often look more sweaty than women at the gym -- and it doesn't mean they are working out harder.

A team from Kobe University in Japan looked at the difference in sweat gland response to changes in exercise intensity across men and women.

It was found women need much more work to build up the same level sweat which can be achieved in men and they also needed to be considerably hotter.

Boffins claim the difference becomes even more pronounced as the level of exercise intensity increases, due to the efficiency of the male sweat gland.

The study also explains why mens trainers smell so bad… but it's no excuse.

Computer games where players control the action by swinging a remote control around are producing a unique brand of injuries, doctors claim.

Medics say using devices like the Nintendo Wii and the new Sony Playstation Move can lead to sprains in feet, shoulders and ankles.

Researchers from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia say there's a growing number of people admitted to hospital with games-console injuries each year.

But injuries are not limited to those overdoing it with their Wii -- many of the patients were to bystanders who had been clobbered by a swinging Wii-mote.

We are now wondering what game has caused the most injures. If you've come a cropper while Wii-ing let us know in the comments.

A 'miracle cream' which it's claimed can increase a woman's boobs by half a cup size goes on sale in the UK today.
 

The £125 'Boob job' gel promises to plump, firm and lift boobs by as much as 2.5cm if applied daily for 56 days.

Makers Rodial claim it works by blocking fat cells as they travel round the body, increasing a woman's bust size.

Celebrity fans of the gel are said to include Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, Victoria Beckham and Kelly Brook.

Before you ask, no, we don't think Scarlett Johansson will need to take you up on your kind offer of rubbing it in for her.

275x250.jpg60% of men in a relationship have ended up in the dog house after buying their other half lingerie which doesn't fit, it has been found.

A survey of 3,000 women discovered millions of blokes have fallen into the trap of buying their partner underwear which is too small.

It was found a similar number of men have accidentally bought lingerie a size too big -- interestingly both mistakes often lead to "Are you saying I'm too fat" argument.

However, the most common complaint was that men buy the 'wrong style' of underwear and only consider what they want to see their wife of girlfriend wearing.

While buying bras which are 'too tarty' was the fourth most common complaint, buying underwear which is 'too frumpy' and 'not tarty enough' are eighth and tenth on the list -- making us wonder who's buying underwear for Goldilocks.

275x250.jpgA billionaire has said he's willing to pay someone $1million is they accept his dare of standing naked in front of US President Barack Obama.

Alki David, who runs dare website Battlecam.com, says he will pay the cash to the first person to streak Obama with "Battlecam" written on their chest while shouting "Battlecam."

To be in line for the payout, users must also stream the event live on the site and expect to use some of the money to pay for their inevitable fines and lawyers fees.

David had initially offered $100,000 for the stunt, but upped his bid after applicants said it wasn't enough given the audacity of the dare.

Something tells us Obama should get used to seeing naked people a lot more often from now on.

275x250.jpgMillions of men are still suffering the after effects of the recession - in the form of hair loss, it has been revealed.

The turmoil and anxiety of the biggest economic slowdown in modern history has left a large percentage of the male population with less hair than they had three years ago.

The phenomenon emerged in the wake of pictures showing premier David Cameron with a newly-developed barren patch on his crown less than three months after he secured power.

And now it's claimed there's been an 89 percent jump in the number of men seeking treatment for hair loss in the UK since the start of the recession.

So what do you think of the financially-challenged also being follicly-challenged. Is it hair-larious… or just a load of old bald-erdash?

275x250.jpgRad-faced aquarium bosses have been forced to put a bikini on an underwater statue of a mermaid -- because her boobs were too big.

Staff at Sea Life Chessington said the noticed a number of young male visitors to their underwater tunnel were not giving the marine life their full attention.

Instead the boys (and a few older visitors) were said to be ogling a particularly buxom mermaid statue.

So in a bid to save her modesty and get the guys looking at the fish again, they dispatched a diver to cover her breasts with a bikini.

A spokesperson for the attraction said: "It’s a bit of a boob on our part, really." -- something tells us she'd been for waiting ages to use that one. 

A US artist says she produces her artwork using an unusual method -- covering her 38DD boobs in paint and pressing them against the canvas.

Kira Ayn Varszegi says she first started breast painting almost ten years ago and that her works can sell for £600 each.

The 24-year-old from Connecticut creates each painting by coating her breasts with various coloured paints and then pressing and dragging them on the canvas.

She admits she was initially surprised by the level of commercial interest in the abstract breast works, and that she's now created and sold hundreds of painting.

However, not all of her fans are only interested in the final result… she admits she's constantly being besieged with requests for photos of the 'creative process'.

275x250.jpgThe typical mobile phone can harbour up to 18 times more bacteria than the average toilet handle, it has been found.

Hygiene experts working for consumer guide Which? tested a selection of 30 mobile phones to see how dirty they were.

They found seven were covered in high levels of environmental bacteria which could act as a breeding ground for other bugs.

One of the seven was even (rather worryingly) harbouring faecal coliforms and could have given any user a serious stomach upset.

The findings suggest 15 million mobiles in the UK today could be potential health hazards… something to think about next time someone hands you their phone to look at a photo.

275x250.jpgWomen are at their most beautiful and attractive at the relatively mature age of 31-year-old, it has been revealed.

A study of 2,000 men and women from the UK looked at a variety of aspects of beauty including, confidence, looks and style, in a sample of women.

Overall it was found that a fresh-faced look was rejected in favour of women who also backed their beauty up with confidence and life experience.

This meant women were considered their most beautiful at the age of 31 - good news for current 31-year-olds Katie Holmes and Jennifer Love Hewitt.

However not all responses agreed, when asked when a woman was her most attractive one man said: "After my sixth pint."

275x250.jpgA bizarre bra has gone on sale which is designed to help women hide a bottle of wine in their underwear during a night out.

The 'Wine Rack Bra' looks like a normal sports bra, but actually holds 750ml (an entire bottle of wine) inside the cups.

In addition to giving wearers bigger-looking boobs, there's also a straw which allows them to covertly dink the contents.

Makers claim the 'Wine Rack Bra' is perfect for sneaking booze into movies, concerts, sports events and clubs.

However, users should consider that while a fluid filled bra can boost breast size from an A to a D -- the more drunk you get the smaller your boobs will appear.

275x250.jpgA firm has revealed a set of robotic legs which they claim will soon allow previously wheelchair-bound people to walk again.

Rex Bionics claim their 'Robotic Exoskeleton' can be used by paralysed people and allows then to walk and even traverse steep slopes and stairs.

The brains behind the giant gizmo are a pair of Scottish guys who are now living in New Zealand and have spent £5m developing it since 2006.

Richard Little and Robert Irving say the REX device will go on sale later this year for £100,000 each and that users can master control within a couple of hours.

While we think allowing previously wheelchair using people to walk is a great thing, let's just hope this doesn't speed up the impending robot uprising and cataclysmic destruction of mankind.

275x250.jpgNearly half of all women are so body conscious they prefer to keep their clothes on during sex, it has been found.

48 percent of women say they like to wear items of clothing including a bra, negligee or high-heels while having it away with their partner.

The overriding reason is to 'improve body confidence' with a third of women who wear a bra during sex saying they do so because their breasts look better while 24 percent claimed they just felt ‘sexier’.

However, 61 percent of women claim they always enjoy sex more with the lights off because it allows them to hide their bodies.

Bras where the most commonly worn item during sex (68%) followed by a negligee (59%) high heels (40%) dresses (36%) knickers (31%) -- surprisingly few owned up to a nurses uniform.

275x250.jpgWomen who struggle losing weight and have pear-shaped bodies are predisposed to suffer from poor memory, scientists have found.

Researchers say women with wide hips are significantly more likely to experience memory loss and mental decline as they get older.

The team from Northwestern University in Chicago conducted a study of 8,745 women aged 65 to 79, testing memory and brain function along with weight.

A connection between brain function and body-shape was found, with each increase in BMI resulting in a loss in memory score points.

At least the study give those women with pear-shaped bodies a reason their diet isn't working -- they probably keep forgetting they are on it.

275x250.jpgThe average woman will work her way through more than 100 hairstyles in her lifetime, it has been found.

Researchers discovered the typical female will have her hair layered, shortened or coloured twice a year between the ages of 13 and 65 - or 104 times in her life.

The main reasons for a shift in style are 'boredom' with their current look or the end of a relationship.

It also emerged the average female tries out three different colours over the years.

But the change isn't always for the better, almost three quarters of women admit they've deeply regretted at least one style, and no, it's not always a mullet.

275x250.jpg Hundreds of Americans have dropped their trousers and bared their bottoms at passing trains as part of a weird annual event in California.

Each July for the past 30 years up to 10,000 people have gathered at the city of Laguna Niguel to expose their rears at passing trains - with some even traveling from as far as Europe to take part.

Mooning Amtrak lasts all day and even into the night, with evening mooners advised to bring a torch to help those on passing trains to see their bums.

According to Wikipedia bottom-baring dates back almost 2,000 years… which in our opinion makes these fine folks some sort of cultural heritage protectors.

275x250.jpgSweaty and smelly armpits are seen as the worst preventable body etiquette crime, it has been found.

A recent survey found 46 percent of people say dodgy armpits are the biggest hygiene no-no, followed by yellow teeth with 11 percent.

Other body turn-offs included greasy hair with nine percent of the vote, and smelly feet, four percent.

43 percent of Brits said they're worried about body odour at work and 65% considered applying deodorant as the most important part of their morning routine.

However, the French were billed as the ‘wiffiest’ in Europe, followed by Germans and then the Greeks… not that this was come as news to anyone.

275x250.jpgTwo thirds of men have no idea the lengths their wife or girlfriend goes to look her best, it has been found.

Research revealed most men are oblivious to the extensive beauty routines -- which average 5 hours per week in the bathroom plucking, fake-tanning and waxing.

It was also found 28 per cent of men are unaware any women do things like pluck hairs from their chin, wear false eyelashes or file their nails.

A sneaky 18 percent of women say they purposely keep their partner in the dark about their gruelling beauty regime and amazingly 1-in-20 claim their bloke has NEVER seen them looking 'au natural'

However, this is probably a good thing... because looking at this beauty routine list  - those ones must off looking like the incredible hulk.

275x250.jpgA dating website which only accepts 'beautiful' members has launched a virtual sperm and egg bank for would-be parents who want attractive offspring.

Before joining BeautifulPeople.com would-be members have to pass a public beauty test with current daters decideding whether they are hot enough.

But now the controversial site has launched a service for less attractive couples wanting to have children who are more blessed in the looks department.

Users of the 'Beautiful Baby Service' can pick to receive sperm and eggs donated by 'officially attractive' users - guaranteeing better looking kids.

In odd news, the service can also be used to insure that your little one grows up to be inherently vain.

A powerlifer competing at an event in Chicago tried to squat 1,008 pounds -- and ended up projectile vomiting on a judge.

Logan Lacy was trying to lift the heavy weight at the American Powerlifting Federation contest when the embarrassing accident happened.

As he tried to stand, raising the weight, his cheeks puffed out and then he proceeded to vomit onto judge Garry Frank... who was sitting two metres in front of him.

Logan than passed out and collapsed to the floor, luckily he is okay, other than his dented pride.

In his defence, the phrases "Lift this" and "Do an Exorcist impression" can sound surprisingly similar.


275x250.jpgResearchers have found 80 percent of poker players around the world use drugs and other substances to enhance their performance.

Cocktails of marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, valium and caffeine are said to be used by players to get an edge over their opponents.

A team from Nova Southeastern University say that while the substances allow people to play for longer and concentrate more - they can be harmful too.

After conducting hundreds of interviews with professional, semi-pro and amateur player the researchers said short-term and long-term side effects were also being caused.

73% of players had said they used drugs to focus and concentrate better, while the rest used then to calm their nerves and stay awake. Some just wanted to make poker interesting.

275x250.jpg Hundreds of blonde Latvian women marched throughout the streets of Riga this weekend - to raise morale.

The 'Go Blonde' event, now in its second year, aims to bolster national spirits during the recession and make men people forget their economic blues.

Organisers say seeing blonde women parade through the city takes peoples mind off the dire economic situation in the Baltic state. Other events during the two-day festival included concerts and a Marilyn Monroe look-alike competition.

But the parade of 800 blondes wearing pink and high-heels was the main attraction for men… and source of annoyance from brunette women in Latvia.

275x250.jpgMeasuring 7 feet, 8.33 inches tall, Igor Vovkovinskiy has been officially recognised as the tallest man in America.

Originally from the Ukraine, Vovkovinskiy moved to Minnesota with his mother Svetlana when he was a (not so) little seven-year-old.

Now aged 27 he has grown to a whopping 7ft 8.3inches and has difficulty fitting into cars, finding comfortable shoes and squeezing into desks at the Minnesota School of Business where he is pursuing a degree in paralegal studies.

Doctors blame his growth on a pituitary gland tumour which they tried to remove a few years ago - but the operation was a failure and Igor continued to grow.

Igor beat out the previous record-holder, Virginia deputy sheriff George Bell, by a third of an inch… which will hopefully stop him making those 'longest arm of the law' jokes.

275x250.jpgCompetitors with nimble fingers have battled it out in a bra-removing contest at Chinese shopping mall.

Participants each had to see how quickly they could unclasp eight bras, which were worn by models on a stage in Gungzhou city.

The models - who all had their hair tied up to allow easy access to their bra fastenings - stood in a line as countless men tried their luck.

As if the men needed extra encouragement to relieve the women of their bras in record time there was a prize of 1,000 yuan for the fastest.

But the blokes were all put to shame by a woman who undid the eight bra clasps in just 21 seconds… though to be fair she's had a bit more practice than most of the men.

275x250.jpgThe average Brit now sits on their backside for a whopping 14 hours and 39 minutes every day, it has been found.
 

A study found commuting to work, a day at the office and then an evening in front of the television means millions of adults spend hardly any time on their feet.
 
Research looked at 3,000 people finding most adults spend four hours and 17 minutes at their desk and a further two hours and 27 minutes parked in front of the TV.
 
Once home they will sit down again to use a laptop or home computer for another two hours and 25 minutes.

Admit it, you were thinking this could't be true and then you realised you were sitting down as you read it weren't you?

275x250.jpgResearchers have found drinking coffee can help people working shifts to make fewer errors at work.

Scientists say those who work shifts disrupt their body clocks and tend to be more tired at work, as a result they suffer increased errors.

Looking at how to combat this they compared the impact of taking caffeine (by drinking coffee or energy drinks) with placebos or naps.

Work-related tests showed those on the caffeine suffered significantly less mistakes and had better memory, attention, perception and reasoning.

In that case we dread to think how many mistakes we would make if we didn't have an intravenous drip of espresso hooked up next to the desk.

275x250.jpgAn NHS trust has been forced to install a reinforced steel toilet which can be used by obese patients weighing up to 70 stone.

The super-strong loo is part of a new £2.8m ward at Lincoln County Hospital - which also houses a special suite for obese patients.

It features extra-wide chairs and even beds with hoists and pulleys to get the increasing number of fatties on and off.

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: "The ward contains a special bariatric suite designed to care for grossly overweight patients."

It is not know how close the obese hospital suite is placed to the canteen.

275x250.jpgA dating website only for attractive people says it has axed over 5,000 members -- because they put on too much weight over the holidays.

Bosses at BeautifulPeople.com claim they have kicked out many members seeking love, after they'd piled on the pounds during the holidays.

The newly chubby were apparently caught out after posting images of themselves celebrating Christmas and the New Year - revealing they have let themselves go.

Managing director Greg Hodge said as they no longer met the exacting standards of the community on the site, they had to reapply for membership, only a few hundred have so far been voted back in.

Interestingly Hodge didn't specify how exactly how many mince pies he had eaten this Christmas... or send us a photo of himself.

275x250.jpgMore than a third of women who claim to currently be on a New Year's diet are secret scoffers, it has been found.
 

A massive 36 per cent of women who say they are watching their waistline, are actually hiding food or eating it in the dark.
 
Favourite places to stash food - revealed by a poll of 2,000 women - included handbags, under the bed and in clothes drawers.

And the women admitted to secretly eating it while in the car, walking down the street or even on a sun-bed - anywhere they think they won't get caught.

While it was also found the average diet lasts 15 weeks, 28 per cent of women admitted they have only stuck to a diet for 24 hours... some barely last between breakfast and lunch.

275x250.jpgWomen have a better sense of touch because of their smaller hands and fingers, researchers have found.

Boffins tested the tactile acuity and sensitivity of 100 students by pressing progressively narrower parallel grooves against their stationary fingertips.

It was found that people with smaller fingers could discern tighter grooves thanks to having more closely spaced sensory receptors in their tiny digits.

The boffins from McMaster University say that this explains why in previous tests women were found to have more acute sensation in the fingers.

It also explains why women who wear extra-large gloves aren't generally that 'acute'.

'Golden ratios' of female beauty discovered

275x250.jpgBoffins claim the distance between a woman's eyes and her eyes and her mouth are the key to her being attractive.

Researchers say they have now found the ideal facial feature arrangement and ratio which ensures a woman's face will be attractive to other people.

Apparently the space between their eyes and the mouth should be 36 percent of the face's length and the distance between their eyes 46 percent of the face's width.

This means celebrities including Liz Hurley and Jessica Alba have scientifically perfect facial proportions… like we need science to tell us Jessica Alba is sexy.

Just how unfit is the average Brit? Very

275x250.jpgThe average adult in Britain is so unhealthy they are left gasping for breath after running for a bus, it has been found.



The worrying statistic emerged in a report which also found 22 percent  are 'puffed' after a quick trip up the stairs.


One in five went as far as to admit they were 'left sweating' after running the hoover around the house for just 16 minutes and four in ten 'need a sit down' after mowing the lawn.


The statistics were revealed after 2,000 people were quizzed about the level of their fitness including; how far they can run, how many are left feeling puffed out doing what and how much exercise they do.

It also emerged most people can only manage to run 108 metres before coming to an abrupt halt… that was away from the researcher asking them about their health.

275x250.jpgIt's official, marriage is bad for your waistline. 1-in-5 new brides will put on a stone and a half in weight -- within the first 18 months of marriage.

Researchers found that 22 per cent of newlyweds put on an average of 21lbs - almost a stone and a half - within 12 months of saying 'I do'.



And while more than half say they no longer worried about their appearance and weight after their big day, one in five overindulged on their honeymoon.



Another 42 per cent admitted they simply got too relaxed with their new husband, while 22 per cent even said they no longer felt they needed to impress their loved-one now the ring was on their finger.


We wouldn't be surprised if some even tried claiming their wedding ring must just weigh a stone and a half.

Youngsters who exercise have a higher IQ

275x250.jpgYoung adults who are fit and healthy have a higher IQ and are more likely to go on to university, it has been revealed.

Researchers from the Sahlgrenska Academy looked at the results of both physical and IQ tests taken by 1.2 million youngsters doing military service in Sweden.

They found a clear link between good physical fitness and better results for the IQ test.

Also those who were fit at 18 were more likely to go into higher education, and many secured more qualified jobs.

"Being fit means that you also have good heart and lung capacity and that your brain gets plenty of oxygen," said Michael Nilsson, professor at the Sahlgrenska Academy


Dog owners exercise more than gym members

275x250.jpgThe average dog owner gets more exercise from walking their pooch than a gym-goer, it has been claimed.


Researchers found animal lovers exercise their pet twice a day for 24 minutes each time - a total of five hours and 38 minutes a week.



On top of that, the average dog owner also takes their pet out on three long walks each week adding another two hours and 33 minutes to the total.



But in comparison, a study of 5,000 people found those without a dog spend an average of just one hour and 20 minutes per week exercising by going to the gym or heading out for a stroll or jog.

And almost half (47 per cent) of non-pet owners admit they do absolutely no exercise whatsoever -- though those with a tortoise didn't fare much better.

Doing a sudoko can help you lose weight 

275x250.jpgSpending an hour each day doing sudoko puzzles can help you keep trim, researchers have claimed.

The experts think battling with a challenging mental puzzle can burn off up to 90 calories for every 60 minutes spent trying to solve it.

While it doesn't exactly compete with the 800 calories you could burn on a treadmill in the same time, it's not bad for being sat at hoome.

It is said that while an 'at rest' mind uses 0.1 calories per minute, one which is being challenged burns through 1.5 calories every minute.

But make sure you don't have a cup of tea and chocolate biscuit while you do the sudoko - that would give you an additional 100 calories to burn off.

275x250.jpgMost people who have plastic surgery keep it a secret from someone, whether it's family, friends or work colleagues.

85 percent of patients keep their boob or nose jobs a secret from all the work colleagues while one in five don't even tell close family members.

A survey of 1,000 people found that 15% of women keep their surgery a secret from their families, 27% from friends and 78% from their colleagues.

But men are more likely to hide their moob job or laser hair removal. 22% of men keep their surgery a secret from their families, 52% from friends and 94% from colleagues.

We can't imagine why men would be less likely to tell people, but we only know one guy "Moob Job Phil" who had something done… we can't remember what it was though.

275x250.jpgOne in three schoolgirls is more worried about looking good in class than getting decent grades, it has been found.



Researchers found that image takes precedent over academic success once girls reach their teens.



One in four of the 3,000 nine-to-15 year old girls who were polled, said they believed good looks would get them further in life than good exam results.



By contrast, only one in four boys said the same thing and 36 per cent of boys said they wanted to do well in their exams so they could go on to have a successful career.


That's because the average 15-year-old boy knows his looks won't get him anywhere… not even on the 12.15 to Croydon.

Soldier takes over Miss England duties

275x250.jpgA 21-year-old Lance Corporal has been given leave from the British Army -- to represent England in the Miss World competition.

LCpl Katrina Hodge - dubbed Combat Barbie - will take over from the previous Miss England, who has stepped down after being arrested in an alleged nightclub brawl.

The army beauty - who was the first runner up in this year's prestigious competition - will now represent England in the Miss World final in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 12 December.

She will hold the Miss England title until next July when she hoped to join the effort in Afghanistan.

Though Katrina is used to combat situations - she was commended for bravery in Iraq - the hostile environment of a Miss World competition could still come as quite a shock.

Bad teeth can make you look 13 years older

275x250.jpgStained yellow teeth can make a person look 13 years older than if they had  gleaming white teeth, it has been claimed

Experts say smoking and drinking coffee or red wine coupled with a failure to regularly brush can put years on the average woman.

Researchers showed a photos of a model - one showing off real, gleaming white teeth and another with stained, yellow teeth - to 2,000 people.

They were then asked to guess the ages. The one with perfect teeth was put at 31 while the model with computer-generated, discoloured molar was thought to be 44.

Respondents probably also thought the one with white teeth was American and the dodgy dental work belonged to a Brit.

275x250.jpgGlasses which 'hear' a foreign language and automatically translate what's being said, before beaming it onto the lens, have been revealed.

NEC say their Tele Scouter glasses will let a wearer see exactly what people around them are saying, even in other languages.

It features a microphone and camera which record foreign languages before converting it to text and running it through a translation computer worn on the wrist.

The translation is them beamed onto a tiny retinal display for the wearer to read what was just said - the entire process happens in a fraction of a second.

Does this mean Brits will just start reading slower and louder? 

275x250.jpgThough they would never mention it, one in five girls reckon their best friend is fat, it has been claimed.

A poll of over 3,000 women found most have at least two friends they consider to be overweight, but they regularly lie and tell them they look great.

Almost one in two women say ALL of their friends could do with dropping a few pounds. One in 20 has even ditched a friend after she offered advice about their weight.

Only a quarter of girls have ever plucked up the courage to tell a friend she should lose a bit of weight. And they probably wished they hadn't - because 12 per cent said their friend was 'devastated' and ten per cent 'burst into tears'

The odd news opens a can of worms as many women try to work out which of their friends thinks 'they' are overweight… and then plan to make them cry by telling them the same.

Desperately seeking Gordon

200x175.jpg
(Off-Beat News) Brit artist Alison Jackson, who specializes in creating photos with celebrity look-a-likes, says she is struggling to find a Gordon Brown.

Jackson has produced cutting edge satirical images with political and celebrity look-a-likes including Tony Blair, George W Bush, Britney Spears and David Beckam.

For six years she has tried to find a suitable Gordon Brown - without success.

"It's exasperating," she said.
