Woman 'rents' husband out to do other people's DIY jobs

A mum who decided to rent out her husband to other women to do odd jobs for £40 a time said business is booming - and he's fully booked for weeks.Mum-of-three Laura Young, 38, got the idea from a podcast describing how a man was making a living putting together flatpack furniture for other people.She advertised on Facebook and the Nextdoor app, boasting of husband James' general DIY, painting, decorating, tiling and carpet laying skills, in June.Expecting she might get a few giggles, the 42-year-old had his first client in a day, and was soon working SIX days a week from 9am to 8pm.He's been forced to turn down jobs and' Rent My Handy Husband' is now fully booked until mid-November.SWNS
