A man has forked out more than £12,000 on his My Little Pony obsession. Barmy Ian Taylor, 32, from Ripley, Derbys, has spent almost five years collecting the 80s plastic toys – and even has a custom-made pony suit to dress up as one of his favourite characters, Lyra Heartstrings. His home is packed with expensive collectables of the ponies – which cost up to £80 each from a specialist model shop – and his man-made pony costume takes pride of place in his living room.

Ian, who works in a fish restaurant to fund his pony fix, only saw My Little Pony for the first time aged 27 – when he watched a video his mate had posted online. Ian said,

I never watched My Little Pony when it was first on when I was a child – I preferred Transformers, and collected all the toys. But now My Little Pony is my life.
