Egg picture breaks Kylie Jenner's record as most liked image on Instagram

An Instagram post which features a picture of an egg has managed to become the most liked post ever on the social media platform, knocking Kylie Jenner off the top spot.

The new record now belongs to @world_record_egg, an account set up just after the New Year with the sole purpose of posting the most liked Instagram image ever.

Before the simple egg image took the title, Jenner held the record with over 18 million likes on a picture of her newborn daughter Stormi's hand holding on to her mum's thumb.

Now, the post from the self dubbed Egg Gang has over 23 million likes at the time of writing.

The picture of the egg is the only post made by the account, whose description features an email address and a plea for an official blue tick from Instagram for its record breaking post.
