We can reveal that DESPERATE scammers are eating dead flies in exchange for drugs as part of a sick I’m a Celebrity challenge.
Video footage believed to have been taken with an illegal mobile phone at Low Moss Nick, Bishopbriggs, near Glasgow, shows inmates hysterical as a prisoner eats the animals.
A scammer presents the camera with a tray of about 25 flies before saying, “The Low Moss Fly Challenge, eat some flies for some spice.” Four of them.”
The inmate – wearing a green prison sweatshirt and shorts – scrapes them together with his hands before eating them to roaring laughter and gagging from onlookers.
Another cheater takes the rest of the bugs and types them all together before pouring them into the challenger’s hand.
He eats them all up one more time before sticking his tongue out to show they’re gone – just like the participants at the Bushtucker Trials do in the TV series I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
The video was apparently taken in one of the inmate’s cells, with family photos and personal belongings visible in the background. Currently at least three inmates along with the challenger.
The footage was posted on TikTok and has been viewed more than 31,000 times.
The psychoactive drug Spice has become a scourge in Scottish prisons. Its production was banned in China in 2021, but this led to illegal versions.
It is smoked and can cause users to go into a “zombie-like state”. It has also led to a rise in overdose cases behind bars.
Scottish Conservative Shadow Justice Minister Russell Findlay MSP said: “This clip shows the deplorable reality in Scotland’s drug-ridden prisons, which are being neglected by the SNP government.”
“Unless ministers seriously tackle the problem of addiction behind bars, the desperate and costly cycle of drug-related crime will continue.”
A spokesman for the Scottish Prison Service said: “While we cannot speak about individuals, our staff work hard to combat the introduction of illegal substances and prevent the harm they cause.”
“We have seen the success of actions such as photocopying mail, which has resulted in that mail being removed from our operations.
“However, we are not complacent and will continue to do whatever we can to protect the health and well-being of those in our care.”
