Rude Road Trip for The Inbetweeners - up to £25,000 donation from EA's 'The Sims' on challenge completion!
POSTED ON 19/01/11 10:20

As the nation prepares to do something funny for money for Red Nose Day 2011, The Inbetweeners lads are already on it...

The cheeky chaps from hit TV show The Inbetweeners are on a hilariously naughty Red Nose Day challenge travelling around the country to find the rudest and crudest named places possible!  Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison - otherwise known as The Inbetweeners – have challenged themselves to rack up 50 lewd locations in just 50 hours.   Setting off from Bush Lane at 12pm on Tuesday 18th January and finishing at 2pm on Thursday 20th January at a rude London location to be revealed, they’ll also aim to stop off at the likes of Minge Lane, Titty Ho and Bell End along the way.

The Sims will make a donation into the Inbetweeners Challenge pot each time they successfully reach a new location, with a grand total of up to £25k up for grabs if they successfully reach all 50.  The foursome, also known as their alter-egos Will, Simon, Jay and Neil, will tour their risqué route in the classic yellow Fiat from the series, with the cameras rolling the entire time capturing all of the banter as they navigate their route to meet the 50 hour deadline.

Whilst there will be plenty of laughs, joking and mockery along the way, the Rude Road Trip will be a challenging race against time and the lads need your help! Click the "Rude Road Trip" tab on our UK Facebook page to track their progress or make a donation!

To show them your support, make a donation at and or donate £1 by texting RUDE to 70011**.

You can see how the guys get on, with footage available to buy exclusively from iTunes (***. The whole show will be available to download from 3rd February – when Red Nose Day officially launches.  Red Nose Day is coming on Friday 18th March. More details about how you can do something funny for money this Red Nose Day are coming very soon! All money donated will go towards helping people living incredibly tough lives both here in the UK and in Africa.
