A beekeeper sat on a hive for a PS500 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 for a NZ$1,000 (PS550) 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.

"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."

London's Peckhamplex cinema is set to be haunted by Pennywise the Clown to celebrate the forthcoming movie IT.

Horror fans can see the highly anticipated title at the south London cinema at two special 'IT Upgrade' screenings on September 6 and 8, as part of a terrifying immersive experience based on the Andres Muschietti-directed film.

Peckhamplex which is one of London's most beloved and longest running independent cinemas will host the unique screenings.

Billed as an experience "not for the faint-hearted", IT is based on Stephen King's chilling novel about a child killer on the loose in an American town.

Director Muschietti is confident his forthcoming movie will go down well with older audiences because King, who has seen the new version, absolutely loved it and was "moved" by his interpretation of the book.

He said: "He sent me a personal note. When he saw it, we started exchanging emails.

"He said it exceeded his expectations. He was very moved. He loved it."

IT comes out in the UK on September 8.

A man accused of licking a woman's toes claimed the saliva found on her feet was from his sneezes.

Shaun Smith was accused of assaulting the woman with his tongue, but was cleared of sexual assault after telling police the DNA found on her feet was caused by his heavy cold.

The woman also claimed he put his hand up her skirt, before trapping her on a sofa and kissing her neck and chest.

However, the 54-year-old was cleared of sexual assault over the incident in September 2015 at Maidstone Crown Court in Kent.

A jury found him not guilty after just 15 minutes of deliberation.

Children can now build their own Star Wars droid.

For the first time, children and diehard fans of the hit sci-fi franchise will be able to create their own custom droid and bring it to robotic life.

With the help of littleBits electronic blocks technology and the free Droid Inventor app, owners will be able to teach their R2 Unit new tricks and take it on missions, and can even be levelled-up by using their expertise to give it new skills including being controlled by The Force.

The kit comes with everything needed to build and create the popular R2 unit, and components can be used to build any droid you dream of.

R2-D2 is one of the most popular characters in the entire franchise and, along with his companion and fellow droid C-3PO, is the only character to have appeared in every Star Wars movie to date.
