61-year-old Tucker Lopex is to celebrate his birthday in style; we caught up with him to toast another year as the world oldest child.
From physical appearance it is hard to believe that Mr. Lopex is a child at all, but then it's also hard to believe that he is one of the richest people in Britain. Tucker has earned millions for inventing and owning the rights to the 'Flaming Hoop©', "Originally I just meant it for the circus but it really took off when cartoons and stunt shows started using them"- joked Lopex.
Tuckers will celebrate his 61st year as the worlds oldest child in is spacious mansion by having a car drive though…you guessed it, a 'Flaming hoop', but he has had problems with the security of the event "well, we get protests outside the gates every year"- joked Lopex. There has always been fierce opposition to Lopex's claims of being a child for a while now, we all remember the attempt on Mr. Lopex's life in 2002 when some-one posed as a butler and slipped a pin into his hot chocolate "I could have swallowed it and died!"- Joked Tucker.
Jenny Hornsby (leader of the anti-Lopex protest group 'k-age') claims, "The oldest a child can be is about 14, not 61! Hes only saying he's the world's oldest child for publicity of his 'flaming hoops'". Lopex is bracing himself for more protesters than ever this year and 'k-age' says there not going to give up.
