Top Celebrity Camping Companions

Which famous person would you take camping with you? 

In honour of the announcement that the Duchess of Cambridge would become a volunteer with the scouts, we decided to take to twitter and Facebook to ask our customers which famous people they would most like to take on a camping trip and why. Can you guess who the favourite was?

The favourite by a long way was the head scout himself Mr Bear Grylls, though it seemed the reasoning behind it was most of you wanted him to do all the work!

But Bear wasn’t the only famous face mentioned, so we’ve gathered together some of the highlights and the reasons you gave.
