10 Celebrities Who Love Playing Bingo
Everyone likes to have a bit of fun, especially international celebrities, who are known for living the high life. However, even with their fame and success, even the most famous stars grew up with simple pleasures like playing games like bingo with their friends and family.
In this post, we highlight just 10 of the many famous people out there who get excited about playing bingo games, just like the rest of us.
10 international celebrities who are also bingo fans
1. Sharon Osbourne
The Osbourne family is best known for their reality TV show and Ozzy’s eccentric behaviour. However, many might not know that Sharon Osbourne is a celebrity in her own right in the online bingo community. She has been very involved in promoting the game in online ads and has also volunteered her caller expertise to charity events.
2. Catherine Zeta-Jones
The sultry star of movies like Entrapment and The Mask of Zorro grew up in Wales, where playing bingo games was very much a part of life. Apparently, thanks to a big win at the local hall, her father was able to pay for her dancing lessons, which certainly paved the way to stardom.
She and her husband, Michael Douglas, are also known for playing the game in their home, and it is said that Zeta-Jones likes to make custom cards every year at Christmas.
3. Mick Jagger
Mick Jagger might be best known for his moves on the stage, but he is also rumoured to host incredible game-themed parties at his home in Richmond, London. As the lead singer of one of the wildest bands of all time, The Rolling Stones, this isn’t a surprise!
4. Robbie Williams
The well-known singer, originally from Take That, was born and raised with the game in his hometown of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire. He has also used his celebrity status for a good cause and has hosted several charity events that promote this popular pastime as a way to raise money. Williams loves the game so much that it even features in one of his music videos (Feel), which also stars another celebrity, Daryl Hannah.
5. Denise van Outen
Denise van Outen is a well-known presenter and actress in the UK and is proud of her Essex roots. As the game is very popular in the community she grew up in, van Outen is also a big fan of daubing and counting the numbers. We like her taste for this fun game!
6. Russell Crowe
The Oscar-winning star of Gladiator worked as a bingo caller in his younger days in New Zealand and Australia, and was even fired for coming up with his own naughty names for the calls! Crowe has shared his love of the game in interviews, and no doubt applies his own, er, beautiful mind to counting the numbers.
7. Cristiano Ronaldo
Did you know that one of the most famous international football players in the world is a big fan of this pastime? Cristiano Ronaldo learnt bingo to help improve his English when he moved to the UK. In doing so, the game got so under his skin that he’s reportedly become a dedicated fan. As a top goal scorer, he no doubt loves the excitement that comes with getting a winning combination!
8. Kate Moss
Kate Moss has graced more catwalks and covers of magazines than anyone could probably count and is also a fan of the game. While she might have been seen as a wild party girl in her time, these days Moss apparently prefers a quieter lifestyle, which is said to include staying in and playing bingo with her family, just like many other families like to do!
9. Prince William
Growing up as a prince in the British royal family, there is no way that Prince William, or the Duke of Cambridge, could have not been influenced by the very popular game, which is clear from rumours that he sneaked out of Sandhurst during military training to play a few rounds.
He has also been involved with charity events that use the game to raise awareness for good causes, and to connect with the older community (who we all know love to get their hands on a daub pen!).
The Irish singer of rock band U2 has not only dedicated his time to activism and charity. He’s also said to have been involved in hosting game nights at a café in Dublin called Mr Pussey’s, occasionally even inviting celebrity friends to join him, like Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington.
