Audrey Casey completed bushtucker trials and was crowned Queen of the Jungle

Residents take on bushtucker trials in ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’ activity

Residents at Appleby care home, part of Larchwood Care, competed for King or Queen of the jungle in their very own version of ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’ bushtucker trials.

Residents took on blind taste tests (dietary requirements considered) to win ‘dingo dollars’ which they could trade in for their choice of delicious treat.

Staff wore Aussie hats and decorated the care home to fit the rainforest theme, complete with fake creepy crawlies.

Audrey Casey, 85, was crowned Queen of the Jungle and James Hogarth, 94, was crowned King of the Jungle.

Audrey Casey, Queen of the Jungle, said: “Taking part in our very own bushtucker trials was so much fun, we’ve not done anything like that before! Everyone had a great time, and even those of us who hadn’t seen I’m a Celebrity before still took part.

“The staff are always thinking of creative ways to keep us all smiling and they did a great job making the home look just like a jungle, though I’m glad there wasn’t any real creepy crawlies!”

Clare Leonard, home manager at Appleby care home, said: “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here is such a well-known show, and we often watch it together here at Appleby care home. The residents were such great sports and it was great to see everyone getting into the Aussie spirit!”
