Tombola is once again partnering with the makers of TV’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, and will be bringing back its popular ads very soon. Keep your eyes peeled for #tombolabugs and see how many you can spot over the coming weeks.
Tombola is now in its fifth year of sponsoring ITV’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, and it’s just confirmed that its Tombola Bugs will be returning for the show’s latest series, both on-screen and on-site.
Last year, we saw the celebs head off to Wales due to COVID-19 restrictions, and this year the destination remains the same, so the bugs have been settling into Gwrych Castle.
Who are the bugs?
The computer-generated creepy-crawlies all have names, as well as personalities.
There’s Snail, the Welsh bug along with Grub, the greedy bug. There’s also Miss Spydey (the scary bug), Sticky (the jungle thespian), Ant (the lovable bug), Roach (the tough mudder), Spidey (the scaredy-cat), Cat (the adventurous caterpillar), and Flutter (who’s “fabulously flighty”).
Keep an eye on Tombola’s Facebook page as it will be running competitions whenever the bugs appear on TV!
