The egg that dethroned Kylie Jenner

Reality TV star and Instagram queen Kylie Jenner has been officially dethroned... by a humble egg.

According to the UK Telegraph, a London based Instagrammer, who refused to reveal their real identity had defeated Kylie Jenner as the holder of the “most-liked” picture on the social media site - Instagram.

In its solo post on the Facebook-owned app, the Instagrammer shared the egg picture with the caption: “Let’s set a world record together and get the most-liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.”

The image of a single speckled brown egg on a white background has so far attracted over 43 million “likes” online.

The “world-record-egg” account opened on January 4 and currently has over 6.6 million followers so far. On Monday it gained a coveted blue “verified” tick on Instagram after several copycat accounts cropped up on the site.
