Antony Cotton, who plays Sean Tully on ITV’s Coronation Street, visited Beacon Bingo last Saturday on South Street, Ilkeston.
The 18s-and-above event saw the actor meet and greet guests, pose for photos, sign autographs and play a few games of bingo with the customers.
Cotton started out in Coronation Street in 2003 for one episode, before returning full time in 2004. He has also starred on popular reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, and competed on the 2018 reboot of Dancing On Ice.
“Saturday night’s atmosphere was great and I loved meeting so many Beacon Bingo customers, all of who were in high spirits,” Cotton said.
Andrew Collier, Beacon Bingo Ilkeston’s general manager, added: “An opportunity like this was too good to miss. It was fantastic to have Anthony in our bingo hall. Everyone was in such good mood and really had a great time all evening.”
“The event was a huge success and we were delighted to see both regular and new customers having such a good time. All of which clearly shows if you want the most exciting Bingo experience in Ilkeston, Beacon Bingo is the place to come.”
