Who would have thought that Bingo and Celebrities go together? It might come as a bit of a shock to some, but bingo has attracted quite a celebrity following; some celebs play bingo, others host their own bingo parties, those that represent bingo sites, and even celebs whose careers started off in the bingo industry! Here is a look at some of the better-known celebrity bingo fans.
Bingo and Celebrities, Who Plays?
If you were wondering which celebrities play bingo then, first off let’s take a look at those who are associated with bingo and celebrities sites themselves. This includes funnyman Vic Reeves is the frontman for 888 Ladies, Keith Chegwin has his very own bingo site, whilst Eastenders favorite Barbara Windsor has just been signed up as the leading lady for Jackpot Joy Bingo. There are loads of celebs kicking about in the online bingo world, so keep your eyes peeled!
Of course, bingo is loads of fun, and it’s not just us who have noticed this, celebrities are getting in on the action too. Some of the more famous bingo players include Robbie Williams, Gary Barlow, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Sharon Osbourne, and recently the Royal family got in on the action when Prince William was spotted at a bingo hall while on a break from training at Sandhurst. There are some celebrities that enjoy the health benefits of playing bingo.
Bingo, Celebrities and Superstars
You may have heard of Kate Moss. She is a part-time supermodel and a part-time bingo fan. Next, we have Courtney Cox, who played Monica on the classic TV show Friends. She loves to play bingo with her friends. Everyone knows Mick Jagger, the lead singer of the Rolling Stones, has been known to throw bingo parties in his home.
Bono from the rock band U2 has hosted bingo games for his friends Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell. Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the world’s best footballers, apparently learned English with a bingo DVD, which led to his love of the game.
Even More Famous Bingo Players
More surprisingly perhaps there are a few celebs who started their careers in the bingo world. One famous name, in particular, started as a bingo caller before becoming one of the most recognizable Aussie actors in the world. Yes, Mr. Russell Crowe did in fact start out in life as a bingo caller down under.
Perhaps it was clear from the outset that Russell was destined for bigger and better things as he ended up getting sacked for somewhat dubious bingo calls such as “number 1, up your bum” you cheeky, Russell! So, next time you log on to your favorite online bingo site, remember, you might just be rubbing virtual shoulders with some of Hollywood’s best stars!
Even the Queen of England is a huge bingo fan, playing with the family during Christmas and birthdays. Bingo has been referred to as the common man’s game. But as we can see by the names listed above, many of these people are far from ordinary. You don’t who might be playing in your next bingo game. Bingo and Celebrities really do go together.Author : John Davies
