AJL Makes Bouncy Castle For I'm a Celebrity GET ME OUT OF HERE

Andy J Leisure manufactures Bouncy Castle for ITV show I'm a celebrity get me out of here.

In early October this year we were approached by ITV to manufacture a bouncy castle for use in a famous TV show. The castle had to be able to stand up to adults bouncing on it and plenty of abuse in this particular area it was being used. ITV's researchers were making enquires around our industry as to who could make such an inflatable in such a short space of time to this standard.

Confused by such vast difference in prices and time frames they found the decision tough as being given a certain budget and short time frame, we suited them down to the ground, well to put it another way ' down under'. as they also had to fly this to Australia. One of the show producers contacted ourselves directly to discuss their needs, we quickly knocked up some drawing to match her ideas and when we had agreed on the final drawing the build began. We completed the Bouncer in 3 days then gave it a hard 3 hours adult bashing test, where at one point 8 adults bounced constantly on the inflatable for 20 mins, very tiring but we test all our inflatable before despatch and this one was going to be on a lives show!

See it in link below being tested before it left for live show (I'm a poet!)


ITV received the castle just in time to build the set for the bush tucker trial, the idea was the contestants had to bounce up and down, dressed in medieval clothing and with pointed hats and burst the balloons suspended above them which were filled with slippy slime and the odd star and key for the surprise chest.

Who better to be chosen for the trial than the 2 body beautiful Mark Wright and Emily Scott. What happened next made great television, 2 eye candy celebs bouncing, slipping, flirting and laughing dressed in medieval costumes on a medieval Camelot bouncy castle trying to burst balloons with a pointy hat, hilarious!

Big Thanks to the fabulous Becky Crossthwaite (trial producer) and all the ITV team for such a great opportunity to contract us to for the show.
