Actually Britain's Got Talent pianist Colin Henry DOES have a world record

Colin Henry on Britain's Got Talent

Britain's Got Talent pianist Colin Henry DOES have a world record, despite claims he had been caught 'lying' about it.

The musician had told producers that he had a record for playing the piano upside down.

68-year-old Colin performed his act - which he has been doing for almost 40 years - on Saturday's show and got four yeses from the judges.

Colin taught himself to play the piano and it was said that he held a Guinness World Record for longest time spent playing the piano upside down.

But while there's no doubting his talent, the talk of Colin being Guinness World Record appear to be incorrect.

A spokesman for the organisation told The Sun newspaper today: “We have run an extensive search and have no world records involving piano playing.

“We also checked our second site for alternative records ‘Record Holders Republic’ and we have nothing involving Colin Henry.”

However it has since been cleared up that Colin has have a world record with a spokesperson for BGT confirming: "Collin's record is held with Mike Barwell's Alternative World Records and was awarded in 1987."

It turns out there was a bit of a mix up: Colin himself never claimed to have an Official Guinness World Record but the misinformation was published on the official BGT website.

Britain's Got Talent 2016 will return this Saturday night on ITV with the latest round of auditions.
