A retired couple have been using the same set of cutlery for a staggering 50 years - meaning it has been used an incredible 51,918 times.  Fred and Val O'Hanlon have owned the 56-piece set since they got married in 1964 and not a single piece has been lost and it is still in perfect condition.<br />
<br />
Val's mum Marjory collected tokens from boxes of Kellogg's All Bran, over the course of two years eating an amazing 730 bowls of her favourite cereal.  Her dedication to collecting the vouchers meant Val, who lived with her, could send them off and trade them in for the cutlery.<br />
<br />
When the pair got engaged in 1962 Kellogg's were running the offer, which meant customers could receive a seven-piece cutlery set for collecting five boxes of All Bran.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
