Shoppers Split Over £1 Engagement Rings

Published

on

£1 engagement rings sold by Asda’s George line as well as Poundland has split bargain-loving Brits.

Some said is great for people on a budget or a good place holder for another ring. Others said it shows a lack of ‘consideration’ if you propose with cheap ring.

The £1 ring from both stores comes with a crimson heart-shaped box and has caught the attention of the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group. The piece of jewellery is made of plastic and includes a fake diamond and a silver-coloured band.

The rings come in a variety of sizes, some sugesting they could be great for cheaper alternatives whilst losing weight and not splashing out on expensive jewellery to soon not fit.

The rings also have a selection of shapes and colours including red gem style hearts to the more classic, delicate looking simple ‘diamond’ stone. I think these are a really quirky token of your love to someone that you can treasure forever without breaking the bank.

Shoppers were quickly debating whether they would agree to walk down the aisle with someone who popped the question with a £1 trinket, with some saying that they would happily say yes.

‘If you truly want to marry someone it’s not about the ring or the wedding, but the marriage and life you have together,’ one said.

Whilst others had a more negative view…

‘If my fella bought me this engagement ring for a pound well I’d shove it up his a** and wouldn’t be walking down no aisle,’ one candidly said.

Some cheeky couples also joked they could use the ring to pretend to get engaged at restaurant to get free meals.

Whilst other couples have suggested the rings could be used as a cute ‘promise ring’ or ring to use before they can afford a more expensive, sterling silver version of an engagement ring, I personally think it’s a really sweet gesture.

If you want to grab one from either Asda or Poundland I would be quick as I can see these flying off the shelves this week!

What do you make of these rings? Sweet gesture or just a cheeky purchase for cheapskates for valentines day?

One lucky ticket-holder’s life has changed forever after winning the £184million EuroMillions jackpot. It means they have become the biggest ever National Lottery winner, operator Camelot has said.

Whoever they are, they have knocked the anonymous winner of £170million in October 2019 off the top spot. They have also become the National Lottery’s 14th winner of more than £100million.

The winner, who is yet to be named, is also the second person in the UK to win the EuroMillions jackpot this year, after someone bagged £109million in February.

The winning numbers were 3, 25, 27, 28 and 29 – plus the Lucky Star numbers 4 and 9. One ticket matched all seven numbers to win £184,262,899.10.

Senior winners’ adviser for the National Lottery, Andy Carter said: “What an amazing night for one UK ticket-holder who has scooped the incredible £184million EuroMillions jackpot – they have become the UK’s biggest ever National Lottery winner.”

The claim will now go through a validation process to ensure terms and conditions are met and once the ticket has been validated the winner can choose whether or not to remain anonymous.

Dave Chappelle: US Comedian Attacked on Stage in Los Angeles

Published

on

US stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked on stage on Tuesday during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

After returning to the stage on Tuesday, the 48-year-old made light of the controversy, suggesting to the audience that the attacker “was a trans man”. Chappelle faced criticism and protests last year when his Netflix special was accused of being transphobic.

According to ABC journalist Stephanie Wash, fellow comic Chris Rock – who was slapped on stage by Will Smith at the Oscars in March – then came on stage with Chappelle. It was said an attacker “lunged” at the comedian as he headlined the event, sending him “flying in the air”.

She said: “It looked like someone was dashing across the stage from the side. He fell backwards on to his back, with his arms and legs up in the air. He was obviously in shock. We were all in shock.

“I thought for a moment OK, is this a prank? Because they had made some Will Smith jokes. Even though Chris Rock was there, Dave was making some jokes, it was fair game, right?”

LAPD confirmed they had taken a man into custody and that he was armed with a replica gun “that can eject a knife blade” when discharged correctly. It is unclear if the man tried to use the weapon.
