Meet Gary Turner: the man with the world's stretchiest skin! [Pictures]

Gary 'Stretch' Turner's skin is so loose and stretchy he can turn his belly into a table - capable of holding three pints of beer.

Whether anyone wants to be served a beverage from a skin shelf is unclear, but just in case they don't, Mr Turner has plenty more tricks up his sagging sleeve.

The 41-year-old suffers from an extreme case of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that has weakened his skin.

In most cases the disorder weakens people's joints and blood vessels and affects around one in 10,000 people. Mr Turner's strain is very rare.
