Britain's favourite all time Brit Winston Churchill averaged 22 units of alcohol a day during the 2nd World War, The Observer revealed this week. Despite caning such vast quantities of booze (22 units is equivalent to 4 bottles of wine or 11 pints) the legendary Prime Minister remained unrepentant, the Observer recalled.

"Remember, I have taken more out of alcohol than it has taken out of me," Churchill once reportedly boasted. The legendary PM is also renowned to have been a regular user of amphetamines and cocaine.
