A beekeeper sat on a hive for a £500 bet.

The man was dared to use his hive as a throne and placed his bare bottom on the nest of bees, but says it was the easiest money he's ever made.

Jamie Granger stepped up to the challenge and sat on his hive with a bare backside for NZ$1,000 (£550) bet with his friend.

He told Metro: ''Was it painful? Well, it was just as you can imagine.

''It wasn't pleasant but it was certainly amusing. As you can imagine your a**e swells up.

''It was just a spur of the moment thing and he offered me a thousand bucks - I was like 'well a thousand bucks', that sounds good.''
