Celebrities are playing the Bananagams word game in their droves, says the company behind the product.

The game, which launched seven years ago and enjoyed its best 12 months in 2012, is a hit with Kristen Bell, Scarlett Johansson, Cindy Crawford, Kelly Clarkson, Caroline Flack, Cher Lloyd, Colin Baker, Judi Dench, Asa Elliott, Chris Jarvis and more.

Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack and pop singer Cher Lloyd both said it was "the best game ever".

Dame Judi Dench is said to play Bananagrams with cast and crew members between film shoots.

Over in the States, Bananagrams is a staple on the Kennedy compound and has been featured on nationwide TV shows including Saturday Night Live, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Good Morning America.

Requiring no pencil, paper or board, Bananagrams comes in a small portable banana-shaped pouch. It has sold more than six million units in 31 countries.

The £14.99 product is available to buy in independent toy and book stores, as well as John Lewis, WH Smith, Waterstones, Tesco, Sainsburys, Waitrose and Amazon.co.uk.

Winning Moves distributes Bananagrams in the UK.
