Singer Charlie Simpson has rocked into the world record books by performing the coldest gig of all time in Siberia.

Fightstar singer in world's coolest gig

The ex-Busted band member braved the minus 30 degrees Celsius temperatures in Oymyakon on Sunday to play a 15-minute set in order to break the Guinness world record.

Simpson was warned by doctors that exposing his skin to such low temperatures could be damaging - but he staved off the cold by putting hand warmers into his clothes.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "This has been the trip of a lifetime. It was unbearably cold, and playing guitar with gloves on wasn't an option. We had to pack hand-warmers into my sleeves to stop frostbite."
