I’M A CELEBRITY Fan Builds Replica Castle on his bungalow, 10 miles away from the real castle
Bill Parry, aged 57, from Prestatyn, North Wales, is such a fan of the ITV show ‘I’m A Celebrity’, never missing a single episode, that he has just constructed a replica of Gwrych Castle, just 10 miles away from the real castle, where this year’s series took place.
Mr Parry, a heating and plumbing contractor, enlisted the help of his 28-year-old son, Josh, to erect a 15ft facade made of scaffolding clad with timber, across the front of his bungalow, then they decorated it with fake spiders, and even full-size models of show hots, Ant and Dec, and is decorated with Christmas lights, and a Santa climbing up the wall.
The inspiration was to raise money for local charities, with Bill saying, “We wanted to give people a lift. I never miss the programme, I watch every episode. It took a few weeks of planning and putting together, and we were given the materials by local builders’ merchants Huws Gray and Thorncliffes. It’s worth all the trouble because of the pleasure it gives so many people.
The pair have also done this to raise funds for a local charity and readers may donate to their appeal by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/william-parry3.
