The next hooligan to spend time behind bars for hospice care is actor, musician and compere, Greg Draven!

Greg is an Eastbourne local and has enjoyed a long and varied performance career. In 2010 he was cast as the Viking Drummer in the Florence and the Machine music video for Dog Days, in 2017 he appeared as a viking (once more!) in DC Comics’ Justice League.

However, he is best-known for his starring role in a Haribo Supermix advert from 2018, where he plays a rocker with a penchant for the sweeter things in life!

Although we can only assume that Greg received some pretty sweet on-set perks while filming the Haribo ad, in September of last year he was found guilty of stealing packets of Haribo from the unsuspecting children of Eastbourne.

There have been multiple sightings of Draven running with ‘Far more Supermix than one man could ever possibly eat’ by locals at locations around the town, including Cineworld at the Crumbles and near the Bandstand.

When police raided Draven’s home last year, they found 233 bags of Supermix, 380 bags of Tangfastics, 120 bags of Gold Bears, and a tub of Haribo Rhubarb and Custard, on which an insider at the scene remarked ‘It’s quite shocking, really; nobody even likes the Rhubarb and Custard ones.’

These random acts of theft appear to be a (misguided) attempt at a money-making scheme, with Draven planning to sell his plunder on the gummy black market - which has been in steady decline for the past few years.

Although we’ve all heard the phrase ‘like taking candy from a baby,’ it appears that Greg has adopted the saying at face value.

Draven’s ill-gotten gains have since been seized by local police - who, in completely unrelated news, have reported that their New Year’s resolution to lose weight is not going to plan - so he will no doubt be relying on the generosity of friends and family to stump up his bail money.
