Watch Nel's report on the Beatles record breaker!

More than 1,600 Beatles fans have broken the world record for the largest choir singing in a round.

A total of 1,631 people got together in Liverpool, north-west England, on Friday to belt out the group's first hit, Love Me Do.

The record-breaking event marked 50 years since their debut song came out.

It only got to number 17, but the foursome from Liverpool went on to clock up 17 UK number ones and become one of the biggest bands on the planet!

The previous record was 897 voices - set in Chicago, USA, in 2011.
