Sam Thompson appointed Chief Prankster for Elves Behavin’ Badly

The Elves Behavin’ Badly are upping the ante this festive season, having hired mischief-maker and reality star Sam Thompson as Chief Prankster to help spread chaos in homes and workplaces up and down the country. Known for his banter and practical jokes on long-suffering girlfriend Zara, practical joker Sam has joined the Elves Behavin’ Badly line-up to inspire the nation to get pranking, with everyone encouraged to share their best pranks on social media using the hashtag #prankmas.

Made in Chelsea star Sam, who is leading the pranking charge along with a host of celebrities, will be inspiring the nation with a festive pranking 101 to encourage people to embrace their mischievous side this festive season. Whether it’s tips on executing classic pranks such as adding festive wrap to everything in the bathroom – right down to the toothbrush – or ideas for pranking festive bakes with the addition of hot chilli, Pranksmas is back with a bang.

Donning stripey tights and taking his new role seriously, the TV personality is encouraging people to unleash their inner prankster and get on Santa’s naughty list.

“Being assigned Chief Prankster for Elves Behavin’ Badly is right up my street,” says Sam. “It’s basically my calling, as everyone who knows me knows I live for winding up anyone around me. Coming up with Pranksmas ideas with the Elves and being encouraged to cause chaos and taunt Zara for basically the whole month of December is amazing – she won’t know what’s hit her!”

Following concerns of shortages with up to a million Elves Behavin’ Badly dolls previously stranded in China, the stock is now arriving in the UK having been flown in and the cheeky Elves will be here just in time to cause their traditional festive mayhem.
