The 53-year-old, from Whitburn, South Tyneside, pulled on 302 pairs of slacks to grab back his title and set a new Guinness World Record. ‘I think I’m the first person to hold the record twice, probably because no one else is daft enough to do it twice,’ he said after his latest triumph. Mr Craig, dubbed Geordie Pantsman, shot to fame in 2010 when he pulled on a record-breaking 211 pairs of underpants, later auditioning for TV show Britain's Got Talent. However he lost the record earlier this year to Janine Keblish of the US after she squeezed on a whopping 252 pairs.
On Sunday the determined dad-of-three reclaimed his record and is awaiting confirmation from Guinness World Records. 'It went very, very well and the official number is 302,' explained the architect. 'I wanted to be the first person to put on over 300 pairs and I did it. 'Putting on all those pants is harder than it looks because you're carrying an incredible weight, but the crowd really spurred me on and kept me going.
'There must have been about 1,000 people in that tent and they were all cheering me on.' He added: 'My wife Jacqueline helps me out with this one by getting all the pants ready and helping me get them on, but she doesn't like the limelight as much as I do. 'I think this is it now though, I'm not going to go and attempt any more world records.
