A TURKISH MAN officially has the Guinness World Record for the longest nose – with his snout measuring a whopping 3.5 inches.

Mehmet Özyürek, 71, first stole the crown 11 years ago – and his sniffer is still growing.

His beak was measured on Italian TV show Lo Show dei Record back in 2010 – where they discovered he had the world’s longest nozzle.

Guinness World Records today confirmed that 10 years later, his record is still going strong.

They tweeted: "#OnThisDay in 2010 Mehmet Özyürek from Turkey was officially confirmed as our record holder for the longest nose on a living person.

"Mehmet's magnificent nose measures 8.8 cm (3.46 in) from the bridge to the tip."
