TV drinking games

So, as I said the other day, I’m currently saving for a holiday to Florida – which means a lot less venturing out of the house and a lot more sitting on the couch watching TV.

And after over a month of weekends spent in a onesie, I’ve decided to take measures to avoid cabin fever. Measures of alcohol. Because, as I discovered this past Saturday, you can make a drinking game out of pretty much anything that graces our screens – and today I thought I’d share two of my current favourites…

Pin up TV

The ‘Saturday night telly’ drinking game

It’s come to my attention that Saturday night telly is made up of ex-90’s boyband members and reality show ‘celebrities’ doing embarrassing things in name of publicity. I don’t think you need more reason than that to start drinking.

– drink if the programme is hosted by Ant & Dec or Davina

– drink each time the celebrity is forced to humiliate themselves live

– drink each time someone cries

– drink each time you have to Google who the ‘celebrity’ is

– down your drink if the first Google result is a leaked sex tape or affair scandal

The ‘News’ drinking game

To say the weather in the UK has been utterly shit recently would be an absolutely massive understatement. But if you’re lucky enough to still reside in a house that hasn’t been washed away in the floods, the coverage on the News channels will have you reaching for the rum in no time.

– drink every time a ‘severe weather warning’ flashes on the screen

– drink every time you hear a slate fly off your roof

– drink every time you’re shown live footage from the  floods

– drink every time you’re shown live footage of MPs staring blankly at the floods

– down your drink every time an interview with a local citizen ends with them hurling abuse at David Cameron

Until next time… x

My liver is starting to wither and die just from reading these drinking games. You’ve stacked the odds to get as plastered as possible. Good show.

Any excuse for a bevvy, eh Miss Scarlett! You might need an excuse for throwing up at the end of it all. How would seeing a clip of the Louis Theroux / Jimmy Savile interview churn your tummy?

I don’t need an excuse to drink. If I’m watching washed up celebrities squabble like children, then chances are good that I’m already plastered.
