Ben Shephard keeps his Guinness World Records in his downstairs toilet.
The 'Tipping Point' host currently holds records for the Highest Reverse Bungee Jump at 178ft, which he set in October 2008, and the Most Pumpkins Smashed in One Minute when he demolished 11 of the large orange fruits in October 2010 - and he is now keen to add to his collection.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I have had four records in the past but I lost one within 24 hours of getting it.
"But I still have the reverse bungee record and I think I've still got the pumpkins record.
"All my Guinness World Records are in my downstairs toilet and I love it. It's hilarious. People put all their most important awards in the downstairs loo, I've found.
"So that's where my records are and they're the only things I've ever really won.
"My wife often likes to recycle things and move things around. There are four up at the moment but two of them aren't strictly my records anymore.
"I don't tell people who use the downstairs loo that though! I think there is space for a couple more."
The 38-year-old presenter is desperate to get his name in the record books again, but he came up short when he attempted to set a new milestone for The Highest Number of Egg Yolks Separated from Egg Whites Using a Bottle in 30 seconds.
He added: "I got a little bit carried away and I was trying to set a new Guinness World Record of the Most Egg Yolks Separated from Egg Whites Using a Bottle in 30 seconds. But unfortunately Guinness weren't interested because they didn't think it was going to be a good enough record.
"But that's the closest I've come to setting a new record. I'm always open to ideas."
This summer, Ben, who loves indulging in some lovely Thins at lunch, is working with Warburtons to provide inspiration for families to help liven up lunch over the summer holidays.
