Mum of four Gina Hussain threw down the gauntlet to Burnley’s mayor when she asked him to open her latest store.
The owner of Iceberg Supplements invited Coun. Andy Tatchell to have a go at her crucifix challenge by holding out two 4kg drums of health supplement food for as long as his arms would hold out.
He and fellow competitors where cheered on by spectators at the shop opening in Standish Street, Burnley. Like the mayor, most participants survived for just over one minute. The prize went to a fitness enthusiast, who managed an impressive 3min 40sec.
Said Gina: “It was a fantastic day, with Bangla drummers and body models, and everyone joining in the fun.”
