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.

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.

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.
