Bed tester insures her bottom line

British hotel worker Natalie Thomas’ rear end is so good at detecting lumps in beds she is having her prize asset insured for £4 million (B190 million).
The 39-year-old from Luton, Bedfordshire (no joke), tests about 24 guest beds a day as “Director of Bed Bouncing” for budget hotel chain Premier Inn.
Natalie is tasked with testing how comfortable each of the chain’s 46,000 beds is, spending around 20 minutes on each one.
Natalie said: “I absolutely love my job and really can’t imagine doing anything else now. I work with an excellent team of “bouncers” and we work together to bounce on every part of the bed, before testing how comfortable it is to lie and sleep on.
“Whilst we have lots of fun bouncing on beds, we take our job very seriously as making sure every guest gets a good night’s sleep is of paramount importance to us all.”
