A woman who claims she caught her ex-boyfriend ‘messaging other women’ got revenge by pouring 82 bottles of coloured glitter all over his home.
Jade Butters, 23, Durham, County Durham, carried out the prank after claiming to have discovered messages and photos sent to other women on her former partner’s Apple Watch.
In a bid to teach him a lesson, Jade spent a £15 gift voucher on multiple vials of glitter that she sprinkled over his clothing, shoes, inside of his socks and all over his bed.
But nursery nurse Jade didn’t stop there, adding some shine to his washing up liquid, washing powder, toothpaste – and even a bottle of lube.

Jade spent a £15 gift voucher she received as a work Christmas gift on multiple vials of glitter that she sprinkled over his belongings while collecting her possessions from his house
‘We got a £15 Amazon voucher from work for Christmas,’ she explained.
‘I spent the entire voucher on 82 tubes of glitter. I know how glitter can get really annoying and I just thought it’d be a really good idea to spread it around his house. Work gave me the gift of revenge for Christmas.
‘At first, I thought I’d be grown up and the bigger person, but after I’d done it I felt so proud. I can’t stop smiling when I think about it.
‘I didn’t want to do anything that would be criminal damage or that would hurt someone’s feelings, it’s just a harmless prank.’
Jade poured coloured glitter all over his possessions, including inside various pairs of trainers an shoes
Jade, a nursery nurse, made sure to fill every single pocket, sock and drawer of her ex-boyfriend’s with colourful glitter

Jade took the opportunity to exact her revenge on her ex while collecting her belongings from his place while he was at work.
‘I still had a key so we agreed that I’d go and collect my stuff while he was at work so I used it as my opportunity to do it’, she said.
‘I put it in the washing up liquid, washing powder at the top of his toothpaste so when he goes to brush his teeth it all falls out, in the drawer of the washing machine and in all his pockets.
‘I thought about putting it in the toilet system. I put it in his bedding so it’ll fall out when he strips the bed. It’ll be haunting him for years.

The couple had been together for three years before Jade claims to have discovered messages to other women while playing games on his Apple watch in December
‘When I left, the house looked like it hadn’t been touched, it looked the same so he wouldn’t have noticed at first but he will when he goes to do a wash or brush his teeth.’
The couple had been together for three years before Jade claims to have discovered messages to other women while playing games on his Apple watch in December.
After confronting him, Jade says that her partner quickly confessed and she decided to end it there and then.
Jade said: ‘The first couple of years were really nice and light hearted. It was a good relationship, we’d do things together and were really lovey dovey.
‘A couple of weeks before Christmas, I was on his Apple watch looking for games because I was thinking of getting one and some messages popped up but I thought they were just from a game server.

Jade described the ‘finale’ of her prank as filling his toothpaste with bright blue glitter ‘so when he goes to brush his teeth it all falls out’
‘It was playing on my mind so I went back to check and I saw he’d been messaging other girls and sending photos.
‘I just said ‘I’m calling it quits and leaving’. I wasn’t putting up with it. I was disgusted and devastated, I just couldn’t understand why he’d do that.
‘It was just before Christmas and we were ready to start a new year and then I found that.’
After filming the prank and sharing the 39-second clip online, amused social media users commended Jade and suggested they’d be taking note of her idea.
However her ex-boyfriend was less amused, and Jade says the last she heard of her former partner was a social media message weeks later expressing his anger at the prank

‘He messaged saying he loves a bit of glitter but then he called it a ‘c**t move’, she said.
‘I think the ‘c**t move’ is messaging other girls. I haven’t heard much from him since.
‘A lot of people [in my work group chat] have been saying how evil it is and a few girls have said they’re going to do it.’
