Mr Blobby’s ‘house’ has been discovered abandoned and rotting away in the middle of the woods.
The dilapidated remains of former tourist attraction ‘Dunblobbin’ were found deep in the grounds of the stately home at Cricket St Thomas in Somerset.
Mr Blobby, the calamity-prone character in Noel’s House Party, was a household name in the 1990s.
‘Dunblobbin’ was originally part of the Crinkley Bottom Theme Park, which was officially opened in 1994 by the show’s host Noel Edmonds at the height of ‘Blobbymania’ (yes, that actually was a thing).
However, the character’s popularity soon dwindled and the park was sold in 1999, after which the attraction was left to rot for 15 years.
The video of the house’s squalid remains was captured by an urban explorer known as Urbanexboi, from Plymouth, Devon, and was recorded shortly before the site was demolished last year.
It was strange to see the place after watching Noel’s House Party as a child in the 1990s. Dunblobbin was different from my usual stuff, but we decided it would be something different and worth doing. I’m glad I managed to see it as it has recently been bulldozed into history now. It was a very strange experience for me.Advertisement
The house is now a popular scene of illegal raves and vandals have spray painted creative insults on the walls, including “Mr Blobby touched me here” and “Noel Edmonds, stop pretending Deal Or No Deal is more than it is”.
A rave in Mr Blobby’s pad would probably be the ultimate house party, although we wouldn’t recommend using hallucinogenics in this creepy place.
