A nine-year-old London girl has set a new world record for bouncing 50 metres on a space hopper in the fastest time.
Skylar Kelly set the best time of 28.51 seconds during the Mini Babybel Bounce for Barnardo's charity event at Lee Valley Athletics Centre in Edmonton, north London, attended by celebs including Jeff Brazier, Chloe Sims, Hollyoaks cast members and Donna Air.
Each celebrity personalised their space hopper, with The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) star Chloe adding some extra sparkle to hers to make it 'Essex'.
Skylar said: "When we found out about the event I couldn't wait to come down and get bouncing on my space hopper.
"I'm so happy I set the world record and I've had the best day.
"I've also managed to raise some money for Barnardo's which is pretty cool as I feel like I've been able to help out kids that maybe don't get the opportunity to play on space hoppers."
