Derek Acorah has once again re-written the history books by correctly answering 107 questions in 90 seconds surpassing the existing record by 84 which was previously held by Eric Beagle the singing dustman.
Taking a 1st round lead of 49 into his chosen subject round, Derek obliterated the rest of the field in what has to be considered the greatest show of intelligence that Mastermind or any other quiz show of its kind has ever seen.
John Humphrys who hosts the show said "I can honestly say that I have never seen anything like it in my life and it all still seems a bit of a blur. I remember saying Derek you have 90 seconds to answer as many question on your chosen subject of the Universe and everything in it and off he went. It got to the point where he was giving 15 correct answers to just one of my questions."
A spokesman for the BBC said "If this had been any other contestant other then Derek Acorah there would probably be an investigation going on by now. But due to the fact that this is Derek Acorah and we all know what Derek is capable of, you just have to hold your hands up and say well done!"
Derek's next project is to complete the Total Wipeout course hosted by Richard Hammond in less than 7 seconds.
