Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has broken the record for the fastest person to reach a million Instagram followers.

Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the Potter films, reached a million followers in just four hours and one minute.

That’s 43 minutes quicker than the previous record holder Sir David Attenborough.

Calling himself “Grint on the Gram”, the 32-year-old actor’s first post was a photo of himself with his baby daughter.

On the picture posted on 10 November, he joked: “only 10 years late”. This was in reference to Instagram celebrating its 10th birthday in October.

Since his first post, Rupert Grint now has over three million followers on Insta.
