Blackburn-based brewer Thwaites has launched a new ale in honour of the town’s latest hero – Carl ‘Foggy’ Fogarty who was crowned King of the Jungle in ITV’s “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here” last weekend.

The 3.8% ABV ale, which has been christened “Foggy’s Jungle Juice” will be on-tap in Thwaites-pub, The Bay Horse Hotel, in nearby Osbaldeston for a limited time to celebrate the victory.

Licensee Helen Knowles said: “Foggy lives locally and is often seen around Blackburn – he’s a great character and we’re thrilled that he has helped to put the town on the map. We’ve all been glued to I’m A Celebrity over the past few weeks, as he’s been such a pleasure to watch.

“Foggy is very welcome to come in and sample his Jungle Juice anytime – there’ll be no shortage of locals wanting to buy him a pint that’s for sure!”

Andrew Buchanan, director of pub operations at Thwaites, said: “Everyone in Blackburn is very proud of Foggy and rightly so. His down-to-earth Lancastrian charm has proved a hit with the British public and we thought there was no better way to celebrate his win than by brewing up a beer in his honour – it’s certainly more refreshing than the deer’s blood he was forced to drink during that dreaded Bushtucker Trial!”
