A man has started building an underground bunker ahead of the apocalypse...in his back garden in Stamford!

Inventor Colin Furze has teamed up with Sky 1 ahead of the new comedy/drama ‘You, Me & The Apocalypse’, and is turning his back garden into a massive underground bunker.

Colin’s bunker will take almost two months to build in the back garden of his semi-detached house.

This is Colin’s biggest project to date and he is documenting the whole thing on Youtube.

The first two episodes of the build have already been seen by 750k people on the website.

Episode 3 launched on Sunday and sees Colin lay the steel floor, walls and ceiling to the bunker, so it finally takes shape.

In Episode 4 lifestyle expert Patricia Bright joins Colin to help with the interior design.

Episode 5 will see the completion of the bunker – with Colin saving some surprising extras for last.

Episode 6 mirrors the narrative of the Sky 1 drama with YouTubers meeting in the bunker to watch the end of the world (well, the season finale!). The final video will take advantage of YouTube’s 360 video function give a full tour of the bunker.

Colin also has a role in the Sky 1 drama. He appears as a market trader selling blueprints for an apocalyptic bunker, blurring the lines between drama and reality.
