Inventor Colin Furze is celebrating the festive season by putting a massive 26 FOOT Christmas tree in his semi-detached house.

The 38-year-old YouTuber cut down the huge Norway Spruce fir tree and remarkably managed to squeeze it into his three-bedroom house - with the tip of the tree poking out of the roof.

Colin, who is renowned for his inventions, including the world’s fastest mobility scooter and longest motorbike, wrapped rope around the branches to bring it into the house without scratching the walls. He then chopped the tree into three and put one section in his lounge, one in his bedroom and the top part coming out of the roof.

“I’d never seen anyone do anything like this before so I thought it would be a fun Christmas project,” said Colin, from Stamford, Lincs. “My children, who are two and six, couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the huge tree and absolutely loved it. We managed to get it into the house relatively easily, but it was hard manoeuvring it up the stairs and over the bannisters.”

Colin had to move a sofa out of the lounge so he could fit the tree into the room, with the branches touching all the walls and obscuring the television. He then squeezed the second part of the tree beside his bed but found it difficult to lie on his bed. He secured the final eight feet of the tree on the roof and decorated the entire tree with fairy lights.

“The tree dropped needles everywhere, but the result was really impressive and worked very well,” he added.

Colin, who has 5.5 million YouTube fans, has previously built a homemade 360 swing, a jet bicycle, and a giant Star Wars AT-ACT.
