For some of us, our car is truly our pride and joy, but for others, it’s nothing more than just a dumping ground on wheels.
It’s the latter that could win a £200 car cleaning bundle in this case though.
From takeaway containers and drinks cans, to random papers, packages and more, most of us either know someone who likes to keep their cars chocked full of rubbish, or are guilty of it ourselves, but that’s why leading car parts supplier, Euro Car Parts, has launched a nationwide competition to search for the messiest motor in the UK.
Now, it may not be a title to wear with pride, but getting to take home the top prize of a deep valet clean and your very own car cleaning bundle make it all the more worth while, and all you have to do is to submit a photo of your messy car interior to be in with a chance of winning.
And there’s still time for the Greater Manchester to represent the region this year.
The nationwide competition is set to close at midnight on Thursday 11th February, so you have a few days left to get those entries in.
Fancy having a look at what you’re up against already?
On the top left, we have an entry from Kevin Miller, who thanks his wife and kids for this array of clutter and won’t own up to any of it himself, and then on the top right, we have Steve Hitchman from Newbury’s entry, who, quite simply, seems to be using the back of his car as a skip.
Below on the left, it seems that Abigail Kaczalska from Preston has a couple of small passengers who like to make a pretty big mess.
Beth Blaylock on the right looks to have swapped the café for her car in Carlisle.
And underneath those two, it looks like Truro’s Rosalind Blight’s back seat passengers have nowhere to put their feet if she ever offers them a lift.
Next up on the left, Asma Begum, from Leicester, seems to have made the common error of mistaking her footwell for a bin.
And then Lauren Martin, from Ashford, apparently likes to use her car as a filing cabinet.
Speaking on the nationwide search, Helen Robinson – Corporate Communications Director at Euro Car Parts – said: “We all have busy lives so cleaning out our cars can sometimes come last on the list of endless jobs, however, it’s important to your car tidy because having things in the way can impact your driving [and] most of us have more extra time on our hands due to lockdown, making it a great time to finally clean it out.
“Though many of these entrants will need the car valet kit, there can only be one winner,
“So if your car is worse than these, don’t miss the chance to enter”.
To be in with the chance of winning a car valet bundle worth over £200, you can share photos of your messy car here on the Euro Car Parts website here.
Wrexham AFC announce Manchester United friendly with hilarious Sir Alex Ferguson video
Manchester United confirmed that they would be playing Wrexham AFC as part of their US tour on Tuesday, but the Welsh club’s Hollywood owners had a much better way of announcing the pre-season friendly.
While the Red Devils put out a simple statement revealing that one of their games would come against the resurgent Red Dragons, Wrexham‘s celebrity owners in Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney once again decided to put their acting to good use and inform their own fans of the upcoming match.
So, what’s the best way for a National League club to announce a massive fixture with one of the biggest sporting franchises in the world? Well, ideal scenario: getting a United legend and perhaps the greatest football manager of all time to help you do it would have quite the impact. Surely not?…
Yes, somehow, Rob and Ryan managed to convince Sir Alex Ferguson to be in the video and while they’re the ones known for their funny bones, it’s the gaffer who shines as the star of the show.
So good. We almost thought we were staring at a still image at one point and the gag was going to be along the lines of him not even being there while they wonder, ‘is he frozen’?, but the punchline was the perfect level of dry for Scotsman who is literally known for his infamous ‘hairdryer’.
Now, we’ve seen plenty of parodies and funny videos since the acting, writing and comedy-producing duo first bought the club back in November 2020, but I think it’s fair to say we never expected to see Sir Alex in a sketch.
Obviously, we’ve seen countless commercial ads involving United down the year working — including that time the players met Deadpool himself (remember that?) — but we can’t remember the legendary coach ever getting involved with these kinds of shenanigans before.
Suppose retirement has given him the free time to focus on the things he enjoys: i.e. more United.
As detailed in the video and United’s tour teaser at the start of the week, the two teams will be playing in a pre-season friendly at the Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego on July 25 later this year.
Not only will there be plenty of American Reds piling through the doors this summer, but there’s also sure to be a fair few transatlantic Wrexham supporters too, as the story of the club’s takeover has captured the attention of millions, especially after their hugely popular documentary series.
To make things even cooler, it isn’t the only connection between the Devils and the Dragons we’ve seen of late either, as former United keeper and Premier League veteran Ben Foster came out of retirement to sign for Wrexham 18 years on from his previous loan spell. What a coup
Reynolds even popped up in his latest matchday vlog. Wrexham really is one of the strangest sporting stories we’ve witnessed in quite some time.
And that’s just part of the first wave of celebrity contestants – more famous faces will take part in I’m A Celebrity… South Africa, entering the camp as the series goes on.
The new series will ‘push them to their limits and test them like never before’, ITV has said, promising bigger and tougher challenges and an even harsher environment.
Also taking part from the launch episode will be Diversity star Jordan Banjo, TV presenter Carol Vorderman, Olympian Fatima Whitbread, former royal butler Paul Burrell, ex-England cricketer Phil Tufnell, and supermodel Janice Dickinson.
ITV said: “Whilst nodding back to the Australian jungle, I’m A Celebrity…South Africa is a uniquely different series so viewers can look forward to lots of unexpected twists and turns.”
