Pictured: The amazing portraits of TV favourites made entirely from food

Artwork celebrating some of the nation's favourite television programmes was unveiled today - with the exhibits made entirely from food.

Artist Prudence Emma Staite
has swapped oils and pastels for sausages and tomatoes to create the TV Dinners display, which includes a depiction of presenter Anne Robinson made entirely from cakes and biscuits, and a life-sized Doctor Who Dalek made from spaghetti bolognese.

The Have
I Got News for You team, including London Mayor and former guest presenter Boris Johnson, have been immortalised with a TV dinner of curry, rice and naan bread.

The edible exhibition also sees the famous EastEnders title scene recreated with sausages and mashed potato, and the Top Gear presenters represented using beans on toast.

The works were commissioned by Virgin Media to celebrate the launch of BBC iPlayer on its on-demand television service.

In a survey conducted earlier this month
, Virgin Media found that over a quarter of people in the UK eat their evening meal in front of the television every night.

The research also found that sandwiches were the most common food eaten while on the sofa, followed by pizza and spaghetti bolognese.

The TV Dinners exhibition will be going on display next month at Virgin Media headquarters in Hook, Hampshire.

Pictured: Photographer's moment of madness as he leaps across 8ft gap in the Grand Canyon

This is the heart-stopping moment a daring photographer leapt between two rocky outcrops over the Grand Canyon - with drop of nearly a mile beneath him.

A crowd of onlookers gasped in horror as the man - who was wearing flimsy flip-flops - risked his life to capture a stunning shot of the Arizona sunset.

Minutes earlier, the unknown daredevil had been casually sunbathing on a rock column.

He had already made the leap once to get to the smaller rock - although that act of daring went unwitnessed.

Once there, he made the most of it by downing a six-pack of beer while relaxing on the outcrop for several hours.

However, as sunset approached, a crowd of tourists gathered and watched as the man took a perfect shot of the canyon.

To their astonishment, he then simply tucked the camera and tripod under his arm and leapt back across the 8ft gap.

He grasped hold of the opposing rock face with just one hand and momentarily lost his grip before climbing to safety.

For those who find their heart skipping a beat just looking at these photographs, it may of some comfort to know that the two rocks are actually joined together lower down.

However, there is still a life-threatening drop of around 20ft on the near, 'safer' side of the rocks. On the far side, the drop is about 0.6miles.

The photos were taken by amateur Dutch photographer Hans van de Vorst, 47, who visited the spot on holiday.

When he arrived at the scene the man, dressed in jeans, t-shirt and flip-flops, was lounging on the rock column around 15ft from the edge of the canyon.

Mr van de Vorst, a marketing consultant from Veenendaal in central Holland, watched as the man set up his tripod and captured the last minutes of the sunset, before
casually finishing his beer, packing up his equipment and making the leap.

'When we arrived he was just taking in the scenery and people were discussing how he managed to get on there in the first place,' he said.

'Nobody even bothered with the sunset - everyone's eyes were on this man and how he was going to get off the rock.

'He looked really relaxed and casually stood up before jumping across the gap.
'There was complete silence as he packed his things up and then a few gasps when he jumped.

'He didn't grab the rock properly the first time and slipped back about 50cm (20 inches) before clinging onto it. Even then he didn't look fazed.'

Mr van de Vorst posted the pictures on the Internet in a bid to track down the mystery man, but no-one has come forward.

The Grand Canyon - which straddles the Colorado River - is 277 miles long and ranges in width from 4 to 18 miles with a depth of more than a mile at its deepest point.

It is one of the deepest in the world and is famous for its array of bright reds and oranges, which are caused by the unusual geological formations.

The dramatic pictures were taken at The Grand Viewpoint at the Grand Canyon's South Rim.

Oops! Learner pilot comes in to land ON TOP of neighbour's plane

For a learner pilot, it is embarrassing enough that you have brought your plane in to land on top of another aircraft that was on the runway.

But when that other plane belongs to your next-door neighbour, the situation reaches a whole new level of humiliation.

Despite the odds, that is exactly what happened at Roanoke airport near Dallas in Texas when one rookie pilot attempted to touch down.

The only problem was that his neighbour, at the controls of a smaller, red aircraft was on the runway and preparing for take off.

A quick chat over the radio and both men thought they had it clear - the other one was going to give way.

Unfortunately of course, neither did, and the undercarriage of the learner's plane became wedged in the top of the second plane's wing when he landed regardless.

Both propellors also smashed together and the planes were badly damaged, although luckily no one was injured.

Roanoke Airport
is the largest airport under private ownership in the U.S. and has over 550 aircraft based there.

But the lack of a control tower means pilots are forced to navigate in and out using the radio.

Pictured: The amazing moment a horse did a perfect somersault

If it had been an equestrian gymnastics event, she would have scored a perfect 10.

After all, it's not every day you see a horse perform a gravity-defying flip of such dizzying proportions.

The four-year-old
mare, called Schattenlady, who had lost her rider moments into a race, went into these spectacular acrobatics as she tried to dislodge her loosened saddle as well.

With crowds at the course in Hanover, Germany, watching in horror, she somersaulted right over before falling flat on her back.

But the show was not quite over for Schattenlady, or Shadowlady, as she is known in English.

Happily was only shaken and bruised and walked away soon after.

And amazingly, both horse and jockey emerged from the acrobatics unscathed.

Meet ‘The Beast’ of guitars

Guitarist Shane Churchill gets to grips with The Beast – a six-headed guitar which has 40 strings and costs £739 – at Weymouth Music Shop in Dorset.

There are only of 12 of the US-made instruments in this country. We're sure Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World would love it...

We're not saying that the years of dedication, intensive training and hard work that must have gone into this woman's skills amount to nothing more than a good pub trick. But she certainly would be useful to have around in a crowded bar.

Defendant too fat to enter court

A suburban New York music shop owner accused of selling knockoff Gibson Les Paul guitars had to be arraigned in a pickup truck in a courthouse parking lot, after his lawyer said the 500lb defendant could not walk into the courthouse.

State Supreme Court Justice Robert Doyle said the man's 'severe weight problem', which prompted the unusual proceeding Thursday in Riverhead. A defense lawyer also had given the court a doctor's letter saying the defendant suffers from osteoarthritis.

The shopkeeper has been released without bail after pleading not guilty to trademark counterfeiting and criminal simulation. He says the case and health problems have forced him to close his store.

He is accused of selling bogus Gibsons for $1,500 (£760) to buyers who thought they were far more valuable genuine versions of the classic electric guitar.

Face of Jesus appears on cider bottle to amazement of pub drinkers

As miracles go, it is hardly in the same league as turning water into wine.

But Michael Cartwright was still pretty impressed when Jesus appeared in the foil wrapping of his cider bottle down at the pub.

"When I saw it I got goose pimples," 35-year-old Mr Cartwright said yesterday. "I have no doubt it is the face of Jesus. You can even see his beard and hair."

Mr Cartwright, a taxi driver from Darlington, noticed the extraordinary image while drinking with a group of friends at his local, the Tanners Hall.

"As the barmaid removed the cap to the cider I suddenly realised what was staring back at me," he added.

One of Mr Cartwright's friends took a photograph. It was only the following morning that he realised how clear the image was. But by then it was too late to retrieve the bottle.

"It ended up getting collected by a barmaid when no one was paying attention and thrown away," said Mr Cartwright.

"I'm not sure what message Jesus was sending and maybe now we'll never know."

Had they only held on to the bottle it could have been worth considerably more than the £2.49 it cost over the bar.

Four years ago on eBay, American Diana Duyser sold a piece of ten-year-old toasted cheese sandwich - which appeared to feature the face of the Virgin Mary - for £15,000.
