Jerry Hall may well be the hardest working woman in showbusiness after appearing in six West End musicals in one night, as part of London's One Amazing Week campaign. The statuesque American managed to set a new world record, thanks to the help of some slick stage management and a powerful motorcycle.

In the space of just under three and a half hours, Jerry performed in Phantom Of The Opera, Blood Brothers, Les Miserables, Fame, Anything Goes and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Most of the audiences didn't realise they were watching the famous Texan, because they were all non-speaking roles and her participation was not announced. After each appearance, a 1,000cc taxi-bike collected the actress and whizzed her off to the next show.

"I love musical theatre, and to appear in six shows, playing six characters in one night is something I never thought I would see myself do," she said before starting her race against time. "It's going to be tough, but I cannot wait to rise to the challenge of setting a world record."

Altogether the 47-year-old spent 33 minutes on stage and was watched by nearly 10,000 theatre-goers. The only problem, she later revealed, was finding a moment to go to the loo.
