AND the World Gurning Championship is… Tommy Mattinson. That’s 14 wins in a row now for Mattinson, at Cumbria’s Egremont Crab Fair.

How does it feel, Tommy Mattinson?

“I’m pleased to have won again. My neck’s sore, but other than that I’m OK.”

The women’s contest was won by Newcastle’s Helen Irving from Newcastle.

Sadly, gurning is not yet a televised sport, but if it was can we nominate Bruce Forsythe for the presenter’s role..?
