If you've never considered ending a relationship through the majesty and power of country music, you may want to take some notes. Which is exactly what I did, at the New Zealand premiere of The Breaker Upperers. After debuting at the South by Southwest festival in Texas, the homegrown comedy played before a Kiwi audience for the first time in Auckland on Tuesday night.

It’s official: the Guinness World Record for the tallest stack of tortillas belongs to Greater Manchester. The tower, made by Joy Ehsan from Rochdale, was made up of 389 individual tortillas and measured a whopping 68.5cm (26.96in) in height. The world-beating stack was painstakingly put together, one tortilla on top of another, in the Baab-e-Salaam Banqueting Hall on Cottenham Lane, Salford. Joy, a 34-year-old manager at the venue, succeeded in breaking the tortilla tower record, previously set at a music festival in Texas, on his very first attempt.
