The body positive activist, 24,Harnaam Kaur from Slough, Berkshire, said it was “humbling” to be included.

“Now with a beard measuring as long as six inches in places, she overcame years of bullying to take ownership of her appearance and achieve this record title at the age of 24 years 282 days,” her record citation reads.

2016 has been a huge year for Harnaam, having become the first female with a beard to walk the runway at London Fashion Week in March,” it adds.

Ms Kaur has polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal condition that can result in the growth of excess facial hair.
