Mary Berry clocks up world record

Great British Bake-Off star Mary Berry has helped to break the Guinness World Record for launching the most amount of ships in one day.

The baking queen did her bit by smashing a bottle of bubbly and christening a boat, Digital Spy reported.

A total of 14 ships were launched in one day, breaking the record for the most inaugurated in one day by one company.

Mary, who attended the ceremony in Amsterdam, was quoted as saying: "It's an honour, as well as an amazing experience, to christen a vessel."

A total of 14 Longships in three countries, including France and Germany, were launched in 24 hours for Viking Cruises.
