A 22ft statue of the baby Jesus that looks like Phil Collins has got worshippers singing: I can feel it in the prayer tonight, oh Lord.

Guinness World Records said the 143st sculpture in a church in Mexico could become the first to hold the “largest baby Jesus statue” title.

The likeness to Phil Collins, 68, the drummer with 1970s band Genesis, who also had a solo hit with In The Air Tonight, was picked up online.

One tweet said: “Put some drums in front of it & it would be uncanny!”

Another said: “There’s me thinking Genesis was only in the Old Testament!”
