The Dr Pepper underwear was filled with 169 people at Thorpe Park in Surrey
and they smashed the previous record of 57 set in 2011.

Record breakers all piled into a pair of nine-metre wide Y-fronts as official representatives looked on to verify the feat was an official record.

Chris Rooker, one of the new record breakers, said: “I never dreamed that I would be helping to set a new Guinness World Record today.

“Now I feel like a gold medal winner, I’m wearing my pants with pride, and can’t wait to tell everyone about it!”
