Mancunian Sarah-Jayne Baguley is unemployed, but that doesn’t stop her binge-drinking a staggering 43 units on nights out.

The 19-year-old admits to Closer magazine this week that she regularly drinks over 86 units of alcohol in one weekend.

But the former care worker, who was made redundant three months ago, is unrepentant about how she spends her money.

She says: 'It's stressful looking for a job, I need to let my hair down.

'I'm looking for jobs but in the meantime I don't see why I should stop having fun.

'I don't drink too much – it's only at the weekend and all my mates do it.

'I've been thrown out of clubs and woken up with strangers but its fun.

'Drinking is what I live for. I don't see the point of going out for a couple of drinks. I want to get completely wasted.'
