An Australian doughnut maker has celebrated London Fashion Week by creating a special range of doughnuts inspired by famous catwalk models.

Doughnut Time has made the Catwalk Legends, which was inspired by catwalk icons including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Cara Delevingne, and the products will be available to purchase for a limited time during this year's fashion week.

The three doughnuts are named Kate Floss, which is covered in pink icing, and has been topped with candy floss and an edible cigarette.

The Cara-mel Delevingne sweet treat is decorated with a caramel glaze, black drizzle in the shape of the star's eyebrows, as well as a gold leaf and sugar pearls.

The set is finished with the Naomi Crumble doughnut, which has an apple flavoured leopard-print glaze, and is topped with biscuit crumble and a sugar paper mobile phone.

A man failed to get an erection after being scratched by a cat.

A male of 23 years old who has remained unnamed was attacked by a feisty feline who had the rare disease named Bartonella Henselae, and ever since the man has contracted Catch Scratch Disease (CSD), he has been unable to get aroused, has suffered from testicular pain and has a fever, The Sun Online has reported.

The doctors report for this specific case, read: "In this case the patient was unable to provoke erection despite his will even during periods of calm symptoms."

However, the symptoms have since vanished and the male has "fully regained his erectile function."

The documents continued: "The symptoms quickly vanished and he fully regained his erectile function."

A tattoo fanatic has spent over PS60,000 on the body art, including on his penis.

The male who legally changed his name to Tattboy Holden in 2014 has accumulated more than 100 inkings over his entire body over the last 13 years, which has cost him $100,000 Australian dollars. He has even had his genitalia and eyeball tattooed.

The 48-year-old has spent a total of more than 1,000 hours under the needle, but he has revealed he has only been able to go through with the sessions because it gives him some sort of relief from the chronic pain syndrome he suffers from.

He told The Sun Online: "I was on some medication that gave me side effects, and I needed an operation. After a few operations I was left with nerve damage that cannot be repaired.

"I had already had some tattoos in the past, but through the course of this I found tattoos were a form of pain therapy. I call it 'pain distraction'. I look forward to it.

"If the tattoo is big enough, it distracts the pain for about a day. It still hurts, but it's on your terms.

"The chronic pain returns eventually, but it's a release. The skin between my eyelids and nose is probably the most painful. It feels like eye surgery, your eyes just pour water. Lips felt like razorblades. And my c..k hurt, obviously."

However, Tattooboy's collection of body art has led to him being branded a criminal, and has even made it difficult for him to find employment.

He explained: "I have definitely been mistaken for a criminal and even a standover man once, but the tides are changing. People are becoming more accepting.

"It has definitely spun my life in a different direction. I might not be able to work in an office again."

A man was photographed rolling a cigarette while asleep at a festival.

The man, who was at the Shambala Festival in Northampton, had partied so hard at the music extravaganza to the point he passed out and couldn't wake up despite people chanting, "He's not waking up. He's never going to wake up."

The male was first spotted by 24-year-old India Barford, who was making her way to the fire pit at the festival, and took pictures with the man, which encouraged another 60 people to take photographs with the cigarette-rolling-sleeping man.

India told the Metro newspaper: "I think everyone just couldn't believe he had slept through it all.

"Then suddenly the whole crowd started singing, 'he's not waking up. He's never going to wake up' so I started filming.

"It got louder and louder and the guy did wake up. Everyone started cheering for him."
