The world has gone mad. For the first time ever, a woman may actively seek searing criticism of her appearance - from builders.

In Bristol, a new kind of insurance policy means that wolf whistles could lose a woman £100,000.

Nicola Jones took out a £200 a year insurance policy as a birthday present for husband Simon after he joked that he would go off her if she lost her looks.

In order to make a claim, she will have to be declared unattractive by a panel of ten builders.

And what will she spend the money on?

Jones promises that she will use the money to hire a personal trainer or go to a health farm to lose weight rather than resort to plastic surgery.

Or perhaps she could invest it in a less superficial husband?
