A research poll carried out by the indoor ski centre Chill Factore has revealed that skiers have the best bums in the world. Out of the 2,000 people asked as part of the survey, over a quarter thought that skiers' backsides were better than any other backsides on the planet.

"Skiing is the activity for perfecting a pert posterior," said Chille Factore chief executive Morwenna Angrove in an interview with The Daily Mail. "Although skiing exercises all our major muscle groups, it particularly targets the inner and outer thighs, hamstrings, and buttock muscles - thanks to the crouching position that skiing involves."

While we're reluctant to put our cynical hats on and serve up a big dollop of cynicism, it does seems somewhat suspicious that the research was carried about by an establishment where you pay to go skiing. Surely this is just a sneaky marketing ploy by Chill Factore.

The Top 10 Bums (According to the Chill Factore Survey)

1) Skiers

2) Ballroom dancers

3) Fitness instructors

4) Cheerleaders

5) Olympic gymnasts

6) Footballers

7) Snowboarders

8) Models

9) Runner

10) Fireman
