The Brudenell family have a combined age of 855!

This gives them a combined age of 855 - and an impressive 27 years on the current record holders, nine siblings from Sardinia.

Jean Ewert, 71, is the third youngest and was the sibling who discovered their unusual claim to fame.

She said: "We're still as close as when we were kids."

If only all world records were as easy to break!
