Head balancer to attempt new record

ILKESTOn record breaker John Evans will attempt to balance 1,800 eggs on his head to mark his 65th birthday and raise cash for charity.

John, who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent last year, will carry out the stunt in March at a family fun day.

John said: “I am very happy to have the opportunity to attempt an eggcellent venue.

“If all goes well we will have a smashing time.”

All money raised from the fun day, which will be held at Betty’s Farm, Willington, will go to Sight Support Derbyshire and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.
