Drunk Spoons nan and grandad bought drinks for locals they had so much booze

A nan and grandad who went viral after they were bought swathes of drinks from strangers online ended up with so much booze they had to give some away, their family has revealed.

Grandparents Josie and Geoff were treated to what they thought would be a quiet "nightcap" at The George Inn in Sandbach, Cheshire, by grandson Mark Hamlet. But the evening quickly took a turn as the couple was plied with pints, wine and shots after Mark posted the couple on the Facebook group "Wetherspoons the Game!!", the Daily Star previously reported.

The concept is fairly straightforward – revellers share their location and table number on the group and fellow social media users can buy them tipples via the pub chain's app. Josie's daughter Belinda, who was also at the pub during the unexpectedly heavy drinking sesh, told the Daily Star her family had no idea how many drinks they'd receive.

"We sat down and we ordered a round of drinks and some food and then put it on the Wetherspoons Game, to be honest not really realising how mad it would go," she confessed.

Belinda said her mum and dad were soon inundated with glasses of their favourite drinks as well as some more surprising beverages. She said Geoff had a pint and "mum had a couple of reds," then "the shots came but so much stuff arrived that we shared it out."

"Lots of stuff arrived so we turned it [the game] off quite quick! However, there was an elderly couple sat next to us and a gentleman sat on his own so we passed on some of the drinks to them," she continued, adding the family stayed for "a couple of hours." "[Mum] had a couple of wines but avoided the shots. My goodness me, she's 77! We got her home safely anyway.

"She didn't do the shot, I can absolutely confirm."

Belinda added Josie, known to the local community as Nana, got a good laugh out of the evening and is enjoying having her 15 seconds of fame since the family's antics went viral on social media. "She had a giggle and she was kind of overwhelmed, asking, 'What? All these people are just sending drinks and they've never met me. How does that work?'"

"Everyone where we're from just calls her Nanna, she's really well known. She fully embraced the new fame! As did my dad, Geoffrey. But it all seemed to be about Nanna, actually.

"The technology they didn't really understand."
