Debbie Reynolds, 23, said the turnout at the Southend-on-Sea, England, beach was far less than the 1,924 women needed to break the world record, The Daily Telegraph reported Monday.

We really need to try harder. It made me feel pretty embarrassed to be British when we can't even mount a decent challenge." Organizers blamed the low turnout on initial forecasts for poor weather.
