The former England cricketer Freddie Flintoff succeeded in setting 12 world records as part of a challenge for Sport Relief challenge.

His challenges have included trying to wrap This Morning host Holly Willoughby in newspaper in record time. The aim was to beat a time of 3mins 7secs.

He struggled to find the end of the roll of sticky tape, costing him valuable seconds.

His final record was throwing a bullseye from the furthest distance on a standard dartboard.

During the day Freddie also popped into Loose Women for their help with breaking a world record for the most kisses.

Freddie was also joined in Hyde Park by cricketer Steve Harmison who helped him to try to break the 100m in a pedalo record.

His record attempts also included bungee jumping, doing three-point-turns and zorbing.
