Dubbed the human magnet, Allison of Holloway, North London says she is often embarrassed by the effect, which she has been told is down to a heightened electromagnetic current running through her body.
The accounts manager says coins, safety pins, magnets, spanners and even a metal lid from a Vaseline pot can stay on her body for up to 45 minutes without falling off.
When the pulse is at its strongest, she says she can even dance in her living room without them coming off.
For as long as she can remember, she explains, her body has set off car alarms, interrupted the TV signal and blown out light bulbs.
