Norwich fundraiser Mr Remarkableman to attempt 48-hour squat lifting world record

Norwich fundraiser Shaun Jones, better known as Mr Remarkableman, is taking on his biggest challenge yet for Macmillan Cancer Support next week.

The extreme weightlifter and entertainer has enjoyed a rise in his profile ever since entering Britain's Got Talent earlier this year and appearing on the ITV2 spin-off show, Britain's Got More Talent.

He is now taking on the challenge of setting a world record by attempting to squat-lift two million pounds in weight over the course of 48 hours.

He will attempt the feat outside The Canary Store in The Mall Norwich from 1pm next Friday through to 1pm on the Sunday.
