I’M A CELEBRITY . . . Get Me Out Of Here! begins tonight.
With more than 11million of us watching last year’s final, I know that most Sun Savers will be looking forward to watching as much as I am. If you’re looking to bring the jungle to your home, here’s how you can host an I’m A Celeb-themed evening on the cheap.
CAMP OUT: Make your own jungle-inspired camp. Invite a few friends and tell them to bring a sleeping bag each.This is also a fun idea for kids and families – plus it’s a great excuse to keep extra cosy. If you don’t have a sleeping bag, you can get one from Tesco for £10, reduced from £16.
CREEPY CRAWLIES: Pretend you’re scoffing something really nasty while satisfying your sweet tooth with a bag of jelly snakes for £1 from B&M.Or try some candy eyeballs for £2.25, down from £3.75 at partydelights.co.uk. They will go down easier than real ones, that’s for sure!
BUG OUT: Kids love toy bugs and insects and you can get a tub of 12 for £6 at the toyshop.com.If you want to tackle your own Bushtucker Trial, head to B&M to pick up an official I’m A Celebrity game pack for just £9.99. Spin the wheel and eat whatever it tells you to and win yourself a star.
CHORE IN GOOD HANDS: If the kids are jungle mad, take this opportunity to copy the celebs and put up a chore board to split all your domestic tasks. We all watch the celebrities do their jobs to keep the camp going strong, so it’s the perfect time to encourage the kids with their own chores and make it seem more fun. You can get a white board at Wilko for £1.75. It’s perfect for writing them up and far cheaper than similar versions sold at WHSmith for £7.99.
