An egg has become the most-liked Instagram post of all-time, poaching the record from reality star Kylie Jenner.

More than 25 million people have given their approval to the random photo, beating the more than 18 million likes received by a picture Jenner shared to announce the birth her daughter Stormi last year.

The egg photo was posted on January 4 and is the sole upload on the Instagram account world record egg, which is now asking for a blue tick – a symbol of verification for public figures and organisations.

Fans of the make-up mogul have since tried to help her reclaim her throne, but the egg reigns supreme for now.

The owner of the account has not been established, but an Instagram story – which allows users to post images and video in the form of a consistent slideshow – was uploaded last week suggesting the creators are British.

It had two posts – one that showed a clip from the 1996 Three Lions (Football's Coming Home) music video with an egg super-imposed over a football as it was booted into the back of the net.
