Three world records were set in Ilkeston at the weekend as the town’s world-famous head-balancing pensioner, John Evans, roped ‘Tiser reporter Dave Wade into his latest daredevil fundraising day.

The 66-year-old (John, not Dave), stepped over five people – including our intrepid journo – while balancing 100 half-pint glasses on his head at the Commercial Inn on Saturday.

As if that wasn’t enough, fellow record holder Peter Dowdeswell, 73, guzzled down 20 Frankfurter sausages in less than 30 seconds.

But not before getting three audience members – including, you guessed it, our reporter Dave – to have a go at eating six cold sausages in a minute.

Watch the video to see how he got on.
