Sometimes it's hard to put a price on things. A mother's love, for example, is priceless. Spending time with your friends, also priceless.

And you might assume that having both your legs or arms, or butt cheeks, for that matter, is another generally invaluable state of being. But you'd be wrong.

While us mere mortals don't often get the opportunity to allocate a dollar-sign to our limbs, certain celebrities out there do.

In 2016, the world learned that Mariah Carey had insured her 5 octave voice (From F2 to G7, should you care) and legs for a cool £35 million a piece. No biggy.

But she wasn't the only one to have her most valuable parts insured. From Rihanna to Michael Flatley, we've rounded up a list of rumours, from which we can surmise that celebrity body parts are extremely expensive. Excellent pub quiz fodder, you're welcome.
