The massive 27kg (59lb 14oz) carp, known as 'The Parrot', is part of a trio of prized fish the anglers are desperate to catch.

He said his tussle with the giant mirror carp was like ‘wrestling Mike Tyson’.

The 48-year-old hooked the monster fish at a lake in Berkshire, and later reeled in a 18kg (40lb 8oz) common carp known as The Big Common.

'I've been fishing for 40 years and this is the biggest fish I've ever caught. It is the biggest fish in the UK,' Mr Humphries explained.

'The Parrot is well known in fishing fraternities and all the big names want to catch him.
