This woman slept with 10,091 men during her 15-year stint working in the sex industry – and has written a tell-all book about her experiences.

Despite being raised by devout Christians, Montenegro was a high-end escort by 21, making between $500 and $1,000 for just an hour’s work.

Forget shelling out to watch Wimbledon or the World Cup in Brazil – some truly cracking entertainment has been taking place at a humble village fayre.

Contestants lined up to take part in the World Egg Throwing championships at the Swaton Vintage Day show in Swaton, Lincolnshire. With soft hands and some precision passing, competitors launch eggs up to 45m across the show ground - while their opponents attempt to catch them.

And in another discipline, players face off in messy games of ‘Russian Roulette’ where an unknown mix or hard and raw eggs are used. The first to smash a soft egg on their head loses.

Got a pair of old trainers you think are rubbish? They’ve got nothing on these, which literally are made of garbage found out and about.  The bizarre footwear might at first look like they were crafted from high-end materials, but closer inspection reveals their trashy beginnings. The project called ‘Everything you buy is rubbish’ used waste found on UK shores such as the Thames to make the attire.
