Grandfather Jack Reynolds doesn’t like to take things easy on his birthday.

Last year he stole our hearts when he got a tattoo - at 104 years old - to raise money for charity.

Now, to mark his 105th year, Reynolds has set a new Guinness World Record by becoming the oldest known person to ride a rollercoaster. 

Reynolds, from Chesterfield, boarded the ride live on ITV show ‘Good Morning Britain’ in order to raise money for Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance service.

So far his GoFundMe page has received donations of more than £360.

The centurion seemed to enjoy the ride, beaming from ear to ear the entire way round the track. 

 “I was amazed...every bit was good,” he said after he was back on firm ground. 

We can’t wait to see what he’s got planned for next year.  

‘Good Morning Britain’ airs every weekday on ITV from 6am.
