Smith covers his willy

... in a £1million insurance deal

Arthur Smith’s penis has been insured for £1 million.

Producers of his new West End show reportedly took out the policy to allow the comic to dunk his appendage into a cup of steaming tea every night.

And, of course, unlike the tea, the publicity cannot hurt....

Smith, who turned 50 last month, will perform the stunt as part of his Dante’s Inferno show at the Comedy Theatre.

A theatre spokesman said: “We’ll try to ensure the water is not actually scalding.”

The show opens on Monday, click here to book tickets.
