Ideal Homes Portugal Supports Dragon’s Operation Smile Whilst In I’m A Celeb Jungle

Ideal Homes Portugal Supports Dragon’s Operation Smile Whilst In I’m A Celeb Jungle

Whilst former Dragon Duncan Bannatyne languishes in the jungle, his friend and ally Chris White, founder of Ideal Homes Portugal has been dreaming up a way to support him.

Duncan has been facing some interesting challenges including handling the rather tricky Lady C whilst competing on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, and he seems to be doing a terrific job of being peacemaker in the camp.

His close friend  Chris White was with him the day before he flew to meet Ant and Dec in Australia.

White says:

“I was supporting Duncan’s charity, Operation Smile at a dinner in Hastings on the Friday night before he jetted off Down Under. With the charity foremost in his mind, he’s committed his ‘I’m A Celebrity’ fee to Operation Smile.  Duncan is currently planning the charity’s next mission to Ghana to change the lives of children suffering from hair lips and cleft palates, raising £139,000 for this project which takes place this winter.”



Back in his Portuguese home, pondering his friend’s fate in the jungle, White has decided to further support the charity by donating a generous €1,000 towards Operation Smile every time Duncan wins a vote.

He hopes this action will help keep Duncan busy in the jungle and is a way of aiding this wonderful charity that gives so much back to children who wouldn’t ordinarily receive this life changing help.
