See the circus girl with the strongest hair in the world on tour

Circus of Horrors star Anastasia IV has pulled off another hair-culian stunt, hauling a 2.5 tonne hearse (well, what other vehicle would suit the Horrors?) along London's Shaftsbury Avenue... with her hair.

And HAIR she is again, pulling a car along
Eastbourne seafront as the Circus of Horrors sets off
across the country on tour.
Former bio-chemistry student Anastasia, who recently set a world record for lifting 53.4 kg with her hair, seems to be making a habit of the hair-raising, or hair-pulling stunt, so look out for her when the Circus of Horrors comes to a town near you. For tour dates go to

Anastasia IV takes to the (h)air
The Circus of Horrors was the brainchild of Dr Haze who grew up in a travelling circus and went on to combine his love of rock music, horror films and circus into Britain's most striking, shocking and successful circus theatre show. Read the story of the Circus of Horrors along with a stomach churning description of how to swallow a sword and some even more wince-inducing tales of the lengths fakirs will go to in their efforts to join the troupe, in Circus Mania - The Ultimate Book For Anyone Who Dreamed of Running Away With The Circus.
