The maintenance man at Downham Grange nursing home, Downham Market, was sponsored to dine on a range of creepy crawlies from locusts to silkworm pupae.
His Im a Celebrity take-off Im a Maintenance Man Get Me Out Of Here – was all in aid of raising proceeds to put towards day-trips for the residents.
In a room dressed in jungle decor, Mr Titcombe was greeted with a smorgasbord of insect life and an audience of gleeful residents, staff and friends ready to watch him cringe.
Armed with a jug of orange juice the 32-year-old from Denver munched his way through the insects which were sourced from Amazon.
He said: How people can eat that way on a day-to-day basis I just dont know. It is vile.
Mr Titcombe was supported by wife Georgina and eight-month-old son Asher at the event, which was the highlight of the homes summer barbecue.
He said the buffalo worms, mealworms, crickets and flying termites were not too hard to deal with.
But the finishing course – a zebra tarantula the size of a male hand – was another matter.
It was the worst thing I have ever done, he said. The rest was mind over matter but it was when I got to the spider – I knew it was not going to be pleasant. There was soft goo inside and when I crunched it popped.
Mr Titcombe was a senior carer at the home for two-and-a-half years and has been the maintenance man for two years.
A keen fundraiser for the home, his latest challenge has so far raised more than 500. Along with a sponsored walk from the home to Kings Lynn, he has raised close to 1,500.
He said: It was thought up between me and the deputy manager because I wanted to come up with a different idea. It started off with me finishing with a scorpion but then it became a tarantula.
I wanted to give the residents something worthwhile. Im doing it for them. I see the residents as my family and I enjoy putting a smile on their faces. I just enjoy what I do.
The residents will be able to enjoy trips to the cinema and shows in the run up to Christmas with the money.
