    I can't say I'm surprised to be honest.

    When I worked for PGL, I worked at Pontins in Southport over Easter last year as PGL have activity sites on Pontins camps. It was the most grim 2 weeks of my life, to be honest.

    Not a lot, it was just full of Jeremy Kyle rejects. Seriously, there were more Lacoste tracksuits in there than in a JD Sports despatch warehouse.

    I bet old Fred is turning in his grave.

    Never been there or Butlins, not my scene.

    It served a purpose in its day.
