Record breaking TV host

Japanese host Norio Minorikawa has entered the Guinness World Records for appearing on live television for the greatest amount of time each week.

The presenter - also known as Monta Mino - spends nearly 22 hours on TV and appears in 11 shows across seven days.

"I'm touched. I want to die talking," he said at a Tokyo ceremony.

Minorikawa also fronts another five pre-recorded programmes, which include the Japanese version of British TV hit Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

He also fronts his own daily afternoon show Omoikkiri TV ­ in which he issues his fans with advice on lifestyle, health and other matters.
