Barbara Windsor Jumping for Jackpot Joy

She was loved for her role in Eastenders and now she is loved as the face of Jackpotjoy Bingo – is there nothing Barbara Windsor can’t do?

It’s nothing she doesn’t deserve and when good old Babs was handed this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award by the Variety Club of Great Britain, I don’t think anyone could think of a more suitable winner. She is now the ruler of show business as well as an internet bingo site.

But don’t think this lovely lady is now quietly retired. In between preparing or the Dick Whittington panto, appearing on the One Show this Friday and also being mentioned on Harry Hill’s TV Burp, she is one very busy bee!

Her role as the Jackpotjoy Bingo queen is not only benefitting her by keeping her in the public eye but it is also raising the profile of the online bingo site for them. There is no one above the age of 12 who does not know who Barbara Windsor is, she is a national treasure.

But she left the Cinderella style Queen outfit behind when she collected her award, instead she looked completely stunning in a sparkly pinstripe tuxedo. Showing the young fashionistas how it’s done.

When at the awards, which took place at Grosvenor House in Park Lane in London she was clearly emotional and commented, “It’s wonderful to get an award. Gee whiz, you leave EastEnders, you think people will forget about you, but this is great.”

Jumping on the internet bingo band wagon was a great shout by the real Eastender. The popularity of these online games has gone sky high over recent years and this does not look like it’s about to change. If internet bingo is your thing why not check out similar sites such as Redbus Bingo and Giggle Bingo?
