A man plans to have his nipples, belly button, and genitals removed to be a "sexless alien".

Vinny Ohh has already had cheek, and brow fillers, facial peels, and Botox and uses coloured contact lenses but is planning PS130,00 worth of surgery to complete his "unsexless" look.

Speaking on UK TV show 'This Morning', he said: "My next step is to possibly remove my genitals, nipples, my belly button, to give me a complete black, unsexless look."

However, he can't have the surgery in his native US so will travel abroad to have the procedures.

He added: "There are so many rules and laws against it. It's not done a lot, so I'm looking at two doctors in Sweden and one in Thailand for these procedures."

And Vinny isn't worried about how having his genitals removed will affect his love life because he isn't interested in relationships.

He said: "No, I'm not interested in relationships and it's not really a possibility in LA. For someone who is gender non-binary, it's hard in general, so I'm not worried."

A customer was sent $5 by a takeaway that refused to put pineapple on her "gross" order.

The woman ordered a pineapple pizza from an unnamed takeaway, but instead of making her fruity choice, the chef was so grossed out by her topping selection that they refused to make it because they are said to be "against" the Hawaiian classic, the Daily Mirror reports.

Since Iceland's president, Gudni Thorlacius Johannesson, spoke out against fruity pies on a visit to a school last month, the topping has sparked controversy.

The Twitter user @Try2ShootUsDown, who ordered the pineapple pizza, wrote: "Acidic fruit with tomato sauce and hot cheese. It's intense."

Instead of her favourite dish, she received $5 and a note scribbled on the inside of the box that read: "Couldn't bring myself to put pineapple on it. That's gross. Sorry."

Diners at Five Guys fast food chain have ordered bacon and cherry milkshakes.

With almost 200,000 burgers sold across the chain's 60 restaurants each week and a whole host of celebrity fans, including Mollie King, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, the eatery has compiled a set of weird facts about the food its customers order.

The most weird milkshake combination to be ordered is bacon and cherry, while the most popular combo is strawberry, banana, and salted caramel and Coke vanilla and Fanta peach are the most popular carbonated drinks from the self-serve machines.

Meanwhile, of the 28,000 burgers flipped daily 200,000 weekly, and 10,400,000 annually the most popular topping is 'all the way', which features ketchup, mustard, mushrooms, onion, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, and pickle.

In addition, the firm goes through 68 tonnes of potatoes per week to make Five Guys delicious salted and Cajun fries, with 1,100 gallons of peanut oil used to cook them each week.

Fed up Brits want to 'leave it all behind' in favour of a simpler life.

According to new research, carried out by the Travel Channel to mark the new series of 'Life Below Zero', 62 per cent of those surveyed said they were considering quitting their hectic lifestyles for a quieter, simple life.

One in five said that the current climate was to blame, with 74 per cent claiming to find the future depressing.

While 39 per cent were only dreaming about escaping, one in 10 were actually planning to move to the suburbs in the next 12 months.

Meanwhile, 13 per cent had even applied to take part in a TV show, which gave them the chance to live in the most isolated spots in the world.

Phillip Luff, managing director, Scripps Networks Interactive, UK & EMEA, said: "We have seen a huge spike in viewers tuning in to escapist programmes like Life Below Zero. These shows have an ability to transport us from our everyday lives and routines and give us a taste of what life could be like away from our mobile phones, the Internet, and personal computers."

Asked what they would miss most, 52 per cent said seeing friends and family on a regular basis, but even more admitted that they would miss quick Internet access (57 per cent), while 42 per cent of respondents said that they would miss going out for a nice meal.

Life Below Zero is broadcast on Travel Channel Mondays to Thursdays at 10 p.m.
