A woman has to have four showers a day to get rid of a fishy smell she has due to suffering from a rare condition.

The illness is called fish-odour-syndrome - medically named Trimethylaminuria - and Kelly Fidoe-White has been diagnosed with the unusual ailment for her entire life.

She has been forced to work a job that is all night shifts to minimise human interaction.

Speaking about her condition to the Metro newspaper, she shared: "Besides the smell itself, there are very few other symptoms at all and of course you have the side effects of anxiety, social isolation It's hard.

"As far as I know, this condition affects 300 to 600 people worldwide - It's not very well known."

A woman is set to marry herself.

Lynne Gollogy, 39, decided to have a solo wedding because she didn't want to "hang around" for her perfect match to come along, and she believes she will enjoy her life more on her own because she has "no interest" in finding a partner and settling down with anyone after an engagement fell through when she was younger.

According to the Mirror Online, Lynne is set to tie the knot in April this year, and will enjoy a traditional ceremony, which will see her adorn a white gown for her special day before jetting off to Rome in Italy solo.

Speaking about her wedding, she said: "I've had a lot of potentials in the past, but I'm not just going to settle for anyone just so I fit into today's society.

"I've been single for a while now and have no interest in being in a relationship. I did get engaged once, when I was younger, but it was silly and nothing came of it.

"I think with these things I'd never says never - but I'm not going to hang around for much longer.

"It's always something I've wanted to do, and because 'Mr. Right' hasn't turned up yet - I'm just going to go ahead and get married without him."

However, the wedding will not be legally binding.

A student received a parcel filled with rubbish from his mother.

Connor Cox, 18, thought his parent had made a kind gesture when he received a large box with his address in her handwriting on it, but was surprised to find the package contained all of the trash he had left in his room at home, which he had promised to get rid of during his holiday.

The teenager took to Twitter to share his upset, and posted a picture of the box with the caption: "Thought my mom was sending me a care package ... but instead she sent me a box of trash I was supposed to take out. (sic)."

And Connor's sister, Mackenzie, has revealed their mother was "very proud" of her idea.

She tweeted: "@thedeal_5 Actually it was the trash you left on your floor. she was v proud of herself hahaha (sic)."

A video of a man swimming in a puddle has gone viral.

Paul McGrorty stripped down to his underpants and tossed his dry clothes to one side as he jumped stomach first into the water, before showing off his swimming ability to his friends.

The man has been caught on camera perfecting his butterfly and backstroke while laying in the pool of water on the road, and the footage, which has been obtained by the Metro Online, has since gone viral.

The clip not only captures Paul's antics, but a number of onlookers stopping to gawp at him and also record the moment, although he was not fazed by the attention his unusual actions attracted.
