Celebrations has ‘ruined people’s Christmas’ with first two doors of its advent calendar

People were absolutely fuming about this.

Everyone has their favourite chocolate when it comes to Celebrations, but none divides opinion quite like the humble Bounty.

The coconut flavoured sweet has an almost Marmite-like effect on people, and to be honest with you, I absolutely hate the bastards and they can all do one.

However, if I bought a Celebrations advent calendar I would be prepared for the fact there’s definitely going to be at least a couple of Bountys in there.

But some people have managed to lose their shit over the inclusion of the divisive coco-chocs, after the first two doors both contained a Bounty.

And they took to Twitter to voice their anger, even going as far as to say their Christmas was ‘ruined’ by a simple chocolate.

One angry calendar owner said: “Was excited to open my advent calendar to start the festivities and I get greeted by a BOUNTY. Way to ruin Christmas, Celebrations. Thanks, I hate it.”

These people were in agreement:

However, this enterprising guy decided to take advantage of the situation and set up a ‘Bounty donation centre’ for all the unwanted chocolates. Fair play:

Celebrations didn’t shy away from the controversy, taking to Twitter to expertly troll everyone who was complaining about the double Bounty start to the month:

Day three provided a bit of respite from the onslaught of hate, as Celebrations decided to calm down on the trolling and put a Mars in the third door.

One Twitter user summed up our feelings on the matter quite nicely: “Oh dear. Why do people buy a celebrations advent calendar and then complain it has a celebrations chocolate in it…”

Well played Celebrations, you knew exactly what you were doing when you added the double Bounty to the start of the month…

A huge illegal party at the University of Manchester’s student halls was caught on camera this week.

The large gathering of students was recorded on Snapchat, taking part in a big party just outside the Owens Park halls located in Fallowfield.

The incident, which took place late Thursday night and into Friday morning, was broken up by police and campus security.

Partygoers can be heard shouting and chanting loudly in one video, which was captioned with ‘Covid wah?’, while another clip shows people dancing to music from a sound system.

The University of Manchester has released a statement, with a spokesperson saying the uni ‘strongly condemns’ the students’ actions.

According to the university, students that were involved are having their details recorded, with some going through a disciplinary process, while others have already been issued fines by the police.

A university spokesperson said: “We are aware of this party and our security services worked with Greater Manchester Police to shut it down.

“This behaviour is totally unacceptable and the University strongly condemns it. We have been clear and consistent with our messaging around student conduct and behaviour in halls and we will be working hard to identify those involved.

“Our students must respect social distancing rules and all other restrictions to keep themselves and others safe.

“If students do not comply, they will face disciplinary action from the University, which could lead to fines or expulsion, and we will not hesitate to involve the police if necessary.

“Some students have already been issued with fixed penalty notices by the police. Additional security officers have been deployed in Fallowfield and further reminders sent.

“Details of offending students are being recorded and a number of these will now go through our disciplinary process.”

Gordon Ramsay has angered everyone again with his £56 Sunday roast

Not again…

Gordon Ramsay has done it again, and this time fans are very unimpressed by his £56 Sunday roast. 

The TV chef has already been dragged for serving up a £19 Full English breakfast that was ‘pitiful’, with fans saying ‘where’s the rest of it?’

Someone also left a one-star review on TripAdvisor for ‘five small slices of meat and over salted fries’, aka steak and chips at his restaurant. 

Gordon announced the news of his Sunday lunch at the Savoy Grill in London on Instagram, writing:  “Sunday’s at @SavoyGrillGordonRamsay roast sirloin of beef with all the trimmings… absolutely stunning!!”.

Except fans were pretty disappointed that ‘all the trimmings’ didn’t exactly mean ‘all’.

One person wrote: “Is that a child’s portion?”, while another added: “Where’s the rest of it?”

A third person commented: “Error 404. Trimmings not found.”

The worst bit, the restaurant charges £56 for two courses and a drink.

The roast uses ‘prime local produce’ and the ‘precise culinary techniques’ used mean guests can ‘revel in the delights of roast sirloin of beef, seasonal vegetables and Yorkshire pudding, followed by a classic Savoy dessert – Baked Alaska’.

The website adds that you can top it off with your choice of ‘Bloody Mary or fruit cocktail’ for a two course experience ‘you’ll remember’.

But not everyone was as mortified as others.

One person pointed out: “If you want shit food and lots of it for a cheap price go to a Toby carvery, if you want quality food from a Michelin star chef it comes with a price!”

Another added: “Oh hell yes!” 

What do you think, would you pay £56 for a roast?

Man shares cleaning hack that shows how dirty your ‘clean’ towels actually are

This is disgusting…

Jared Guynes shared his wife’s cleaning hack for towels, warning that ‘clean’ towels are actually pretty nasty.

People have been left seriously grossed out by this towel cleaning hack that reveals just how dirty your ‘clean’ towels actually are.

Sharing pictures of freshly cleaned towels in grimy water on Facebook, Jared has racked up over 86,000 shares and loads of people have vowed to give this a go.

Despite these towels having just gone through a wash, the bathtub is full of thick, cloudy brown water. Jared said your towels are ‘probably this nasty too’. 

His wife got the cleaning tip from a YouTube video for ‘towel stripping’. The deep clean requires a cocktail of Arm & Hammer, baking soda, borax, Oxi Clean and hot water in the bath, and soaking your towels overnight.

Jared wrote: “In this case she took our collection of clean towels, let me say that again, the towels were totally clean, washed and folded and in the linen closet, completely clean, completely normal.

“The story that she told me is that over the years of use, microscopic amounts of soap and detergent get locked in to the fibres of the towels.

Jared Guynes/Facebook

“Subsequently that stuff gets gummed up and can also trap microscopic amounts of dirt and grime and bacteria, even after going through the washing machine with detergent.

“So after seeing someone else do it she decided to do the experiment on our own towels here in the tub.

“I’m literally freaking out right now. The towels at your house, no matter how clean you think they are, are probably this nasty too.”

Jared Guynes/Facebook

There are over 32,000 comments on the original post but not everyone is convinced the dirt is actually from the towels.

One pointed out: “It’s the combination of chemicals. nothing on your clean towels can product that colour of water”. And another added ‘this would be impressive with white towels’.

But others are shuddering at the thought of how dirty other things in their house could be. One added: “Just think of your bed sheets, pillows, duvet and mattress. Then there’s underwear too.”
