Man Claiming To Be Adolf Hitler's Grandson Is Now Getting DNA Test
A man who claims to be the grandson of Adolf Hitler is now having a DNA test to see if the pair are related.
Philippe Loret, a plumber from France, is now having his saliva matched with pieces of skull and jaw bone which are said to have been Hitler's and which are currently in a vault in Russia. This would make for the most bizarre episode of Jeremy Kyle ever.
Loret, 62, is sure his grandmother Charlotte Lobjoie had a secret affair with Hitler when he was a German Corporal sent to France in 1916
He says that his dad sat him and his six brothers and sisters down and told them: "Kids, I've got something to tell you. Your grandfather is Adolf Hitler."
He also said that his grandmother had told his father that Hitler had treated her well and that he was a 'good lover'. Bloody hell, who would tell their son that? Scarring.
A diary entry from September 1944 by royal engineer Leonard Wilkes reads: "An interesting day today. Visited the house where Hitler stayed as a corporal in the last war, saw the woman who had a baby by him and she told us that the baby, a son, was now fighting in the French army against the Germans."
Now, state-run NTV, in Russia, has reportedly taken a sample from Loret and flown it over to Moscow to be tested against the 'remains'.
Appearing on TV, Loret begged Russia to help him find out once and for all if he is Hitler's grandchild.

In the clips he says: "There are always some doubts, but if DNA test is negative - well, there's nothing to do then.
"If positive - my thoughts will be confirmed. Actually, either result will be good, as it will be some result.
"If it is negative, I need to find out who my real granddad was.
"All what I want is to find the truth. It is a search for the truth."
However, some experts don't think that skull even belongs to the Nazi leader. Researchers from the University of Connecticut claim that the skull fragments actually belong to a woman under 40.
Archaeologist and bone specialist Nick Bellantoni told The Guardian: "The bone seemed very thin; male bone tends to be more robust.

"And the sutures where the skull plates come together seemed to correspond to someone under 40."
Hitler was 56 in 1945 when he shot himself - unless you believe the conspiracy theories and reckon he flew off to Argentina, either way, it seems unlikely that our man Philippe is going to get the answers he wants.
