Since he pronounced his judgment and assessment of the quality of mattress filling, Graham Butterfield now has the most valuable and most protected buttocks in Britain.

An official bed-bouncer, his backside is so sensitive, his bosses have insured it for £1million.

“It may sound silly but my bottom is not like the normal bottom. I have increased sensitivity around the buttock area and can feel the difference in the materials used in beds. I am very proud to be the owner of a £1million backside. I want to make it clear that my bottom’s super-powers are quite natural. I have no need of a special care regime,” Graham told the Daily Mirror.

The insurance price-tag matches that put on Beyonce’s and J Lo’s behinds. Graham’s duties at Silentnight in Lancashire, involve bouncing on beds and giving feedback on softness, textures and fillings. His reports help decide which beds go on the market.

“It makes it all worthwhile being the butt of people’s jokes —they are only jealous of my job.”

Steven Simpson, manager at Silentnight, said, “The policy is worth every penny”

Bruce Springsteen’s voice is insured for £3.5 million and Keith Richards’ hands are covered to the tune of £1million.

It is said that the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova’s legs were insured for $1 million.
