Chris Moyles Likes Playing Bingo
Over the years we have seen a barrage of celebrities get involved with bingo sites. The majority are just in it for the money and the endorsement deal.
However, English hero and Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles and his team paid a visit to a local bingo club in Carlisle following an email from the bingo centres manager.
Moyles is currently around the Carlisle location ahead of the BBC’s yearly music festival the “one big weekend”. The festival happens this weekend between the May 14th and 15th 2011. The festival features the likes of Lady Gaga and the Foo Fighters.
Knowing that the Radio 1 team would be in the Carlisle region this week, Charlotte Kennedy, the manager of the bingo hall emailed the producers to ask if they would like an evening of games and a brilliant meal at the venue.
The team obliged and visited the bingo venue.
When questioned about the surprise appearance of the Radio 1 team, Ms Kennedy said, “They played traditional bingo with the books and Dave and Aled also had a go at the electronic bingo”
She went on to say, “Unfortunately none of them won a game. But despite this, it appears to have turned them into bingo fans.”
