George turns 10 at 1010 on 10.10.10 A Leicester boy has achieved a perfect 10, as he celebrated a very special birthday. George Lippitt, from Thurcaston, turned 10 at 1010 BST on 10/10/2010. His mother Jodie Lippitt, 34, said the family was gathering to celebrate with George at home, who was really excited about his special day.

She said, "I couldn’t believe it when the midwife wrote the time and date on his sheet – we have been waiting for this day." Mrs Lippitt said George, who is her first-born, had always been special.

"When I found out I was pregnant I was told there was a 99.9% chance the baby would be unhealthy, so when he arrived safe and well it was a real relief. He was born at a special time and has been special ever since."

George, who is a keen golfer, was due to celebrate with a birthday cake in the shape of the 10th hole of a golf course. He chose to mark the day with family members before going on to a skating party with friends.
